PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I don't think I've ever seen this before, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Samsung anf Google were supposed to unveil the Samsung Nexus Prime with Android Ice Cream Sandwich next week, but in a surprise announcement, the companies said that the press event is cancelled - out of respect for Steve Jobs. In the meantime, leaked specifications reveal that the Nexus Prime could be a real doozy.

About that collective "meh": http://allthingsd.com/20111007/att-says-seen-200000-pre-orders-for-...

Most successful iPhone launch ever.

Watching Apple's event, the main difference between Jobs and Cook as presenter is that Jobs showed his enthusiasm. He dropped his trademark "awesome" and "insanely great" while he talked about a product. The so-called "reality distortion field", it turns out, was Steve Jobs telling clueless tech journalists how impressed they should be, because Lord knows they can't figure it out on their own.

Double the performance with better battery life, "4G" throughput without LTE hardware, massively upgraded photocell with optics to do it justice, and a "beta" voice assistant that blows anything short of IBM's Watson out of the water... but they didn't bump the number, and the average tech journalist is an idiot, so "meh."
