PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And another case of the internet apparently wielding more influence than it seems to. To much dismay, Samsung announced last week that several of its popular smartphones, most notably the Samsung Galaxy S, would not be getting an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich. The internet backlash was palpable, and today, word on the street is that Samsung is reconsidering its position.

There is something so very wrong with the whole mobile market if in the span of 18 months, 512 MB of RAM on something in your pocket is not "big enough" for *anything*.

Cripes! It’s madness. I had 512 MB of RAM on my PC a decade ago, it was way more than enough then, and you can still comfortably run the latest Firefox on Windows XP in 512 MB of RAM now.

With throwaway hardware comes throwaway software. It sickens me.
