Samsung Galaxy Gear ad doesn't copy Apple in any way that matters

Samsung has been airing a new Galaxy Gear ad that's structurally similar to the original iPhone ad Apple aired back in 2007. That's brought up the usual copy cat charges but former Apple evangelist Matt Drance points us the resemblance isn't any more that skin deep. From Apple Outsider:

Apple iPhone 5s vs. Samsung Galaxy S4: Which phone should you get?

The biggest competition in mobile right now is Apple and Samsung, and the biggest rivalry, iPhone 5s vs. Galaxy S4. Both are enormously popular, but both are incredibly different. Integrated vs. licensed, small screen vs. big screen, design-centric vs. spec-centric, and the list goes on and on. Which one is best is a matter of endless debate, but the more important question is - which one is best for you?

Of course Samsung is releasing a gold Galaxy S4

Less than a week after the iPhone 5s went on sale in gold, Samsung is now proudly showing off its latest creation; a gold Galaxy S4. We're not here to claim Apple was first with a gold phone, because obviously that's not true, but given all the 'copying' talk in recent months and years, it's almost predictable.

iPhone vs. Android vs. BlackBerry vs. Windows Phone: Which phone should you get?

Apple has released the brand new, top-of-the-line, flagship iPhone 5s and less-expensive, colorfully fun iPhone 5c. But is either of them the right phone for you? While everyone here at iMore certainly believes the iPhone is still the best phone for most people, most of the time, we're lucky that every major platform now has one or more great phones for us to choose from as well. The iPhone may have the best overall user experience, the highest quality apps and games, the widest range of services, the biggest selection of accessories, and the best customer support, but there are also things the iPhone doesn't offer that other phones do, like much larger screens, physical keyboards, high power cameras, greater hardware options, or simply no Apple about them. How do you know which one is for you? Keep reading!

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 vs. Apple Find my Friends: Which faux stitched leather do you hate the least?

Design trends come and go but faux stitched leather is eternal. Witness: just as Apple has bid a not-so-fond farewell to the rich textures of Calendar and Find my Friends, Samsung has embraced new Corinthian comforts for the Galaxy Note 3. The former, software wiped clean in the name of digital authenticity trends towards the future, the latter, hardware meant to evoke the premium feel-ish-ness of BlackBerry Bolds and supply store notebooks past. Does one still work where the other has faltered? Should both be buried, the earth above them salted? Should both still be rocked, shame never being a good thing to have?

Samsung Galaxy Gear shows what Apple won't do with the iWatch

Samsung has launched their pre-emptive strike against Apple's widely anticipated iWatch, and it's the Galaxy Gear. Not surprisingly, it seems like what many pre-Apple products seem like - the HP Slate held up by Steve Ballmer at CES 2010. That's potentially neither good or bad, but it's another reminder about just how Apple really does tend to think differently. My guess is the iWatch will be to the common perception of a watch what the iPhone was to the old corded handset. But we'll see. Meanwhile, Alex Doby from Android Central has a complete Samsung Galaxy Gear hands-on locked and loaded:

Samsung picks up the faux stitched leather and slaps it on the back of the Galaxy Note 3

Just as Apple finished tearing down - and making fun - of the stitched leather in iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks, tenuous partner and heated rival Samsung has picked it up and slapped it on the back of their new Galaxy Note 4 phablet. I kid. A little It's massive, otherwise almost majestic 5.7 inch device, and Phil Nickinson has a complete Galaxy Note 3 hands-on up already:

Vector 9: Ben Thompson on Microsoft's mobile dilemma

Ben Thompson of stratēchery joins Rene to talk about Microsoft in a post-Ballmer mobile market, the IBM analogy, whether they need to be more like Apple, and why Google and Samsung were so damn smart. Also: Nokia sale!

Note: This was originally supposed to be next week's episode of Vector, but due to Microsoft buying Nokia, we decided to fast-track. (It's especially interesting given Thompson, until recently, worked at Microsoft on the Windows 8 apps team, and previously interned at Apple on the Apple University project.)
