iOS 8 code allows for apps to run in split-screen mode | The Verge

I’m not only going to need this to be true, but I’m going to need it to come to the iPad mini w/ Retina!

Adding a slew of features stolen from competitors all at once seems to indicate that Apple is thinking differently about messaging, and perhaps for the first time seriously questioning Messages’ ability to hold onto its spot as the most-used app on your phone.

So this is how Apple might take advantage of a larger screen…makes complete sense!

please note my sarcasm.

But it is good that at least Apple would want to take advantage of the larger screen market. Get ready to buy all new Apple Accessories!!!

Amazon announces $99 Fire TV set-top box, available now | The Verge

well…we knew this was coming. The question is: what is going to separate this from the Apple TV and the Roku? Amazon says that it’s faster than it’s competitors…but my Roku 3 doesn’t really lag so that’s not important. The content on here looks the same as it’s competitors so again what is going to be the difference?

Wow…this looks amazing. I don’t know what Apple has up its sleeve…but it’s late to the watch game at this point.

Samsung Developing Ad Model to Rival Google & Apple

Steve Jobs is the archetypal entrepreneur of our age, right? And he is not an innovator, right? He’s the guy who comes second or third and makes it better.

More about HTC and Apple…

Wow got a few more responses than I thought I’d get to the question about HTC being the next Apple.  And I pretty much agree with y’all. Apple controls every aspect of their products: design, marketing, apps, software…even the accessories to a point. HTC is not even close to having that type of control. HTC has to play by Google’s rules and make adjustments to whatever Google puts out. I could never imagine Apple giving that type of control of the software or any other part of their devices to anyone else.
