My Nexus 4 review, just the hardware:

Speakers suck (very low).

Proximity sensor (does’t work properly, could be software issue, doubt it).

Battery life (very poor).

Buttons on the N4 (cheap plastic, flush, no divide on volume rocker).

WiFi (drops connectivity, doesn’t stay in range or only shows 1 bar repeatedly).

Call quality is terrible (could be speaker issue also, person on other end is always hard to hear).

Display (meh, it is not “retina” in other words not as good as my iPhone).

Camera is nice if you are into blurry photos (blur filter in Snapseed is not needed).
  • Camera: iPhone 4S
  • Apeture: f/2.4
  • Exposure: 1/15th
  • Focal: 4mm

Tablets to outpace laptop sales in 2013?

http://totalipad.com/tablets-outpacing-laptops/

I still do not think we are at a point where tablets can replace laptops for serious work yet but I do think people who are buying new devices are looking at tablets first and maybe hanging on to their older laptops. For me personally, I use my iMac as my main computer and my iPad has replaced my Macbook as my mobile computing device. I guess it depends what you need a computer for, I use my iMac mainly for video editing so what I can do on my iMac blows past any video editing app that I have on my iPad. I guess for the general public who are only using a computer for Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, etc., the iPad or iPad mini would be perfect for them.

I think laptops can benefit from touch screens, but that doesn’t mean we should consider them tablets. Laptops, phones, and tablets all play different parts in my work or play. And, for me, they each need to be no compromise machines.

It’s very interesting to see Microsoft (becasue those are Microsoft even though it is an HP machine) and Samsung advertising with the word “best” in reference to a device they’re trying to say does two things. 

And you can eat the cake too, right?

riiiight.. neither is the best at either.. the sister of LMFAO.

The Fascinating iPad

When you think about the tablet market it is really amazing what Apple has created. If you were to walk into a Best Buy in 2010 the only tablet you would have seen was the iPad. If you walked into Best Buy in 2011 you would have seen the iPad and probably a few Samsung tablets and maybe a couple other off brand tablets that nobody ever bought. Not that many were buying the Samsung tablets in fact a lot those who did buy the Samsung tablets ended up returning them because they thought they were iPad’s. This is not about the slavishly copying of Apple products that Samsung committed. This is about the iPad and the market Apple created for tablets. Walk into a Best Buy today and you will see aisle upon aisle of tablets now. Matter of fact my last trip to Best Buy I counted 4 aisle of tablets, 2 rows front and back of every type of tablet imaginable. On top of those 2 rows Samsung had their own kiosk of tablets that featured their flagship tablets and they were conveniently placed next to the Apple kiosk in the Best Buy[1]. Then you had the iPad section which if I remember correctly only had 3 iPad’s on display, I believe a black WiFi, Black WiFi + Cellular and a white WiFi only. This next stat still has me rather perplexed.
