The thing is, Samsung and others know this very well. Part of their business model is to roll out new features early to feed that instinct and get positive press. Have to give credit, because it has worked spectacularly for them in all but two cases.

Bad products that truly just aren’t ready for release have a way of hurting product categories, not helping them.

First to ship doesn’t really matter if the product isn’t competent. By all accounts, it isn’t. It isn’t even Beta level hardware judging by the reviews. I would rather see them release something that works, so that it will encourage other companies to develop similar devices.

Here we are years later and all that are preparing AR products for the consumer space are being careful to the extreme. Why do you think HoloLens never fully rolled out or my Magic Leap continues to wait even when their demos impress? Because Google scorched the Earth.

Or they can have the exact opposite effect. See Google Glass for a perfect example of how damaging it can be to an entire category to rush to market. Far too early and expensive, so much so that it created a negative backlash that wouldn’t have existed otherwise.

I don’t use many templates, so I wasn’t aware of that Word limitation, though.

Infinitely better. I tried to use a Surface as my main blueprint markup device before the new iPad Pros came out. It was a mess. There aren’t many apps available in the store and the ones that are there aren’t as polished as what you can get for iOS.

No. They are literally behind any other manufacturers making folding phones at the moment because theirs is a piece of crap that breaks within days of arrival. Also, even if it did hold up, their design doesn’t hold a candle to Huawei’s.

They also aren’t truly arriving for another 2-4 years. Not in terms of mainstream pricing and practicality. The only thing they are “disrupting” today is the tech news cycle, and that is temporary.

I love my 12.9, as well. I can’t wait to see how iOS 13 takes things up several levels with unfettered multitasking.

It’s the tech press and, even worse, ill-informed analysts who call for heads to roll.

Their groundbreaking idea is as ready for shipment to consumers as the Fyre Featival was ready for ticket holders. There isn’t anything groundbreaking about abject failure. Maybe Huawei will pull theirs off, but Samsung obviously rushed something to market (again) and failed.

You are dismissing a lot here with the AirPods. They didn’t just polish the hardware. They created a new chip that completely reworked the Bluetooth pairing experience. They made something easy that wasn’t before and the competition took two years to even get close. Come on.

And when something goes wrong, like with the Fold, they get a partial pass because of the perception that they are out on the bleeding edge.

The tech press loves shiny and new, which is part of why Samsung does things the way they do. Same with Huawei now. They feed that desire in a way that Apple doesn’t because both companies know it pays off in positive press.

No one eats their own like Apple fans, especially those Apple fans who were around before the return of Jobs They seem to think the company perpetually owes them something extra.

But it’s also good to see a pulse, at least. More competition at the top is good, especially since Huawei will probably never have a presence here.

Well, it would be good to see some numbers for NA with that for context. LG and Moro aren’t exactly top flight competition, and Google’s worldwide numbers must still be pretty low based on the global share that was in the report.
