Just needs some repeating…

https://www.yahoo.com/tech/s/galaxy-s6-vs-iphone-6-face-off-performance-132058145.html

The Galaxy S6 has 3GB of RAM compared to the iPhone 6 1GB RAM.
The Galaxy S6 has an OCTA CORE 2.1GHz CPU compared to the iPhone 6 DUAL CORE 1.4GHz CPU.

To summarize, the Galaxy S6 has:
* 3x the memory.
* 4x the amount of cores, each core about 150% “faster.”

In what world should Apple’s A8 chip (the dual core mentioned above) be beating or keeping up with any of the quad core and octa core chips in the Android world? Android and/or Android hardware == INEFFICIENT.

In closing, men with 10″ cocks boast that they have 10″ cocks that only function properly with Viagra.

MacBook Air to the “rescue.”

Ok, so the MacBook Air didn’t rescue anything. However, this is but one more anecdote in a world full of anecdotes…

Many months back, I bought my girlfriend an ASUS. It was a cheap little machine because she wanted a computer to use and I wasn’t letting her use mine. Sorry, I pay a lot for my MacBook Pro and, if you can’t assure me you’ll treat the physical machine as well as I do, HANDS OFF. That goes for her, a woman in her 30s, and my son… 7. :P

For months, she’d use it…. sometimes. As someone who used her old Windows XP machine until it died, that’s all she knew. She didn’t know Vista, 7, and here comes Windows 8 on her new ASUS. She didn’t like it very much. Not only was it not comfortable for her to use (even with little tweaks to make it 7-like again), the machine was fairly clunky and bulky. The track pad, like most PC laptops these days, was off center to align with main keyboatd (not keyboard plus number pad). This design never made sense to me… and she didn’t like it either. She was also worried about malware, though I wasn’t really sure why, since I figured she had that issue handled from being an XP user for so long.

Fast forward, and making a long story short, I bought her a refurbed 2014 MacBook Air. 13″, Core i5, 4GB RAM, and 128 GB SSD. In less than a day, she’s been using the thing almost non-stop. This is her first Mac and, although she’s been minimally exposed to Mac, she doesn’t know it yet. And yet, she’s already very happy with the thing, from how it looks, to how light it is, to how it functions without worrying about Windows nonsense that many IT people (and pseudo-IT people alike) say is just par for the course.

I’ll say it again. While no OS is 100% safe from malware, some handle it better. Windows will ALWAYS suck on that front. 15 years of OS X usage on my part on websites that would almost guarantee to give you the cyber version of AIDS, and I’ve never worried. 15 years of OS X increasing usage and criminals have, at best, managed to get trojans and scareware on Macs. *Yawn*

So, while I wouldn’t put her in the Mac camp just yet, she *really* likes her computer. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that she can play some of her favorite old DOS games natively on it (since DOS games only require x86/x64, NOT Windows).

Calling all spec whores…

http://appleinsider.com/articles/15/04/01/samsung-galaxy-s6-delivers-poor-graphics-performance-vs-apple-iphone-6-plus

Now… I realize this isn’t the end all, be all of tests and benchmarks, and there are probably benchmarks where Samsung shines, but can the next person who tells me that a Samsung Galaxy whatever whatever has much better specs than an iPhone simply go hang themselves?

In summary:
* The Samsung has EIGHT FUCKING CORES @ 2.1GHz.
* The iPhone has TWO FUCKING CORES @ 1.4GHz.

If the Samsung isn’t TROUNCING the iPhone, that tells me the hardware is shitty and/or Android is. In either case, please don’t pretend to be a techie and that’s why you prefer the inefficient hardware and/or software.

Just to rub it in, the phone with less cores and slower clock speeds per core won the round. And it won in high performance gaming (you know, the same metric most Windows guys fall over themselves with when comparing to a Mac)? Yeah, your shit sucks WITH (supposedly) better and faster hardware. Hamster that…

FREE cryptocoin for everyone!

No. I’m not kidding. And no, it’s not necessarily in amazing quantities, either. However, if you’ve wanted to play in the world created out of Bitcoin and numerous other altcoins, but didn’t know how to get started, look no further.

  • Step 1 – Sign up here, which is my referral link for Bleutrade.
  • Step 2 – Verify your account through your email address.
  • Step 3 – Go into the Bleutrade chat and start chatting. Don’t be annoying or obnoxious or spamming, or you may get temporarily banned for being an asshole. Normal chatting will randomly get you selected for “rain” by the rainbot or sprinklebot, both giving random coins to random users. On rare occasions, other members will load up the bots with significant amounts, and you could really make out nicely.
  • Step 4 – Use the BleuFaucet. This will let you play a “match game” every 15 minutes and win some extra coins. And, all you need to do is provide your Bleutrade username and one of those annoying captchas and you get even more coins. The extra bonus is that this game feeds the aforementioned bots with more coins to give out.

No promises of being a millionaire anytime soon, but if you ever wanted to get in and “see what all this cryptocurrency is all about,” now you can do it easily. And best of all, it’s free. Join in on the fun!

The “Monopoly guy” does not recognize that his arrogant statement has been made before.

Per the “Monopoly Guy” (Mercedes-Benz chairman Dieter Zetsche)

“If there were a rumour that Mercedes or Daimler planned to start building smartphones then they (Apple) would not be sleepless at night. And the same applies to me.”

That same smugness was applied by Palm CEO Ed Colligan in 2006:

“We’ve learned and struggled for a few years here figuring out how to make a decent phone,” he said. “PC guys are not going to just figure this out. They’re not going to just walk in.”

Proof that people would rather assume someone else can’t come in and take over rather than innovate and grow. I realize that Mercedes-Benz is no slouch of a company, but everyone crumbles when they underestimate competition.

Just another quick thank you!

Somebody was kind enough to make an HTML5COIN donation. I just want to say thank you!

And, no time like the present to ask others for donations as well. I’m here to call analysts and other posters out on their nonsense. They get paid to lie or, at the very least, state a lot of fluff to get people going (or put the word “Apple” in their headlines to get clicks).

With your support, I can make this so much more of a full-time thing and it only costs cryptocurrency. :D

As always, I accept:

Did I miss something?

http://money.cnn.com/gallery/technology/innovationnation/2015/01/02/ces-gadget-hits-and-flops/16.html

The first tablet for Google’s “Honeycomb” version of the Android operating system was a disastrous flop. Xoom sales were dreadful, and Motorola quickly canned the project.

But Google was onto something. Android has since surpassed the iPad to become the tablet leader.

Can someone tell me when Google overtook the iPad? Is there a link? Because even a reputable site like Android Police points to the iPad as the tablet to get.

iPad Air 2 ($499-expensive). Yes, I am breaking the gift guide by putting this here. Why? Because as you’ll notice, none of us recommended the Nexus 9 (edit: Cameron recommended it, but don’t listen to him), because it’s not exactly great. In fact, I’d argue no Android tablet is. The Shield Tablet is a lot of bang for your buck, but the screen kind of sucks and the battery life isn’t spectacular (standby is bad in particular) and it’s heavy, thick, and kinda ugly.

The iPad Air 2 doesn’t run Android and I don’t really care that it doesn’t run Android, because as far as I’m concerned, it’s either this or a Galaxy Tab S if you’re in the market for a premium tablet at this point, and I’m not too hot on the Exynos processor / 16GB of storage / Samsung’s update track record that you get with the Tab S 8.4. The 10.5 is also just too big, and I’m not sure I want an 8.4″ tablet, either, it’s a hair too small. The Nexus 9 is the right size, but pretty much the wrong everything else.

The Air 2 is reliable, predictable, and very fast. iOS still has some tablet experience apps lacking Android equivalents, too, and while Android tablets do have some advantages (like a better Gmail app BY FAR), the iPad remains a no-brainer for me. If it’s my money being spent on a tablet, I’m going to buy the one I know is going to live up to a standard of quality – the iPad has been the gold standard in tablets since it was unveiled, and that hasn’t changed. I don’t see it changing any time soon, either.

We’ll assume that David Goldman at CNN has zero idea what he’s talking about.
