PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Earlier today, Samsung revealed that it won't update the Galaxy S, its most successful smartphone to date, to the latest version of Android. You might shrug and dismiss that as just more evidence of Android's inherent fragmentation or the need for buyers to beware, but I take grave issue with it. This is a decision based not on technical constraints, as Samsung would have you believe, but on hubris." This. A gazillion million thousand times this. Also: "It's simple: make a large high-end device, a smaller value device, and a QWERTY device. Maybe one or two other specialty form factors, tops. That's it. Update them once a year, and keep the names the same." It would make updating a hell of a lot easier. We don't need the Samsung Galaxy SII Epic 4G Touch Sensation.

Re: "plastic boxes,"
That's some good trolling there, sir. Sure come to a forum for computing enthusiasts and belittle the pinnacle of modern consumer computing tech.

Now that you've succeeded in getting people riled up, why don't you head on over to gardening forums and tell people that it's easier to just buy your vegetables from the grocery store.

Oh, and head on over to mountaineering forums and remind people that there's nothing at the tops of mountains but rocks, so why bother?

What, you say? Because it would just make you look like an idiot with too much time on his hands? Exactly.
