iPhone #ALSIceBucketChallenge proves Samsung marketing clueless. Again.

Earlier today Samsung marketing thought it would be a good idea to have the Galaxy S5 take the #ALSIceBucketChallenge — which has succeeded in generating record donations for an incredibly worthy cause — and use it not only to advertise their phone, but to try to do it at the expense of their competition, including the iPhone. The problem obvious to anyone outside Samsung marketing — aside from the stupefying perversion of charity — is that the conditions under which they performed the challenge were pretty much fine for any of the competing phones they called out, including the iPhone. To prove it, I took 15 minutes and made the video above (after taking 45 min. to shake my head first).

I donated to ALS when I made my own video last week. I'm donating again today. I only hope Samsung marketing and everyone who made their ill-considered video is, at the very least, breaking open their massive bank accounts to help out as well.

Samsung announces 'next evolution' of smartphone design — the 2012 iPhone 5!

If I'd fabricated this story back on April 1, 2013, I'd have been called an idiot. (Hell, I probably still will today.) Yet, here we are, August of 2014 and Samsung has just announced the iPhone 5... er... the Galaxy Alpha.

Samsung still obsessed with Apple, screen quantity over quality

Samsung is continuing to use their expensive commercial time to promote Apple products, this time focusing on the difference in screen size between the 5.1-inch display of the Galaxy S5 versus the 4-inch display of the iPhone 5s and, what's more, the 4.7- and 5.5-inch displays rumored to be coming with the iPhone 6 this fall.

Samsung switches to advertising the iPad, knocking their own displays

Say what you want about Apple's ambitious Your Verse campaign for the iPad Air, but one thing you won't see in it is any device from any competitor. Like all of Apple's ads of late, it focuses exclusively on showing us what we can do with the technology in our hands, from the tops of mountains to the bottom of the sea. Samsung, on the other hand... well... where to begin?

New processors for iPhone 6 reportedly shipping from TSMC

Apple has reportedly started receiving shipments of processors bound for the iPhone 6 from chip-maker Taiwan Semiconductor Manucafturing Co. (TSMC). For several years, Samsung has been the exclusive provider of the chips found in Apple's mobile devices. The problem for Apple is that Samsung is their chief smartphone rival. Diversifying their suppliers means that Apple can reduce the amount of business it does with a primary competitor, while also giving them a better position in matters such as price negotiations, according to the Wall Street Journal:

Samsung's latest ad shows just how irresistible the iPhone truly is

I'm not sure what Samsung was thinking with their latest Galaxy S5 ad. They're once again desperately, cynically trying to call iPhone owners stupid for, what they feel, is having fallen for a reality distortion field that favors fruit logos over functionality. You. Me. Our friends. Our families. All of us. Stupid. But do you know what I see? An airport full of people, the vast, vast majority of whom are iPhone users and who value their iPhones so much they can't stop using them, even if they have to stay plugged in, hugging the walls, just to keep on using them. That's a pretty spectacular endorsement for a competitor.
