Get Ready For It: Smartwatch Fans is expanding... and rebranding!

When we Welcomed Smartwatch Fans to the Mobile Nations family on January 1st of this year, we told the story of how the site came to be. In reality, we actually started 2013 with the goal of building a community and resource with a broader focus, covering not only smartwatches, but also other wearables and the broader world of connected devices often referred to as the internet of things.

The problem was, we couldn't find a domain name and brand that we loved. With the months rushing by and 2013 coming to a close and the urge to get a new community launched just as strong, we decided to not delay and get things rocking with the more niche-focused Smartwatch Fans. It's been a busy four months on Smartwatch Fans, and things are about to get a whole lot busier and way more fun.

Apple elects not to help bankroll patent buyer Intellectual Ventures

Apple elects not to help bankroll patent buyer Intellectual Ventures

Patent buyer Intellectual Ventures can count Microsoft and Sony among its latest investors, but previous participants Apple and Intel aren't so in. Intellectual Ventures has previously taken substantial investments from many of the giants of the tech industry, and took that money to buy up patents and then offer a significantly reduced licensing fee to its investors for those patents. Those that didn't opt in to Intellectual Ventures' investment scheme could instead find themselves in the cross-hairs of a patent litigation suit if there was the slightest whiff of infringement. All of this even though Intellectual Ventures doesn't make anything or even patent things itself. You might call them a patent troll, and according to Reuters both Apple and Intel (companies with plenty of cash on hand) have decided that the cost-benefit analysis of additional investment wasn't in their favor.

Shocker: Samsung obfuscated dismal tablet sales

Shocker: Samsung obfuscated dismal tablet sales

A while back there was some confusion over Samsung's "shipped" vs. "sold" numbers for their then-new Galaxy Tab tablet. Samsung, like most companies that aren't Apple, doesn't regularly report numbers. Some "analysts" and "oulets" are more concerned with pushing an agenda or grabbing sensational headlines than figuring out the actual numbers. So, Samsung was generally credited with selling 2 million Galaxy Tabs in 6 weeks and Apple, as a result, with losing 20% share of the tablet market. Now, thanks to the ongoing Apple vs. Samsung trial, we have some real data to reflect on.
