iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 given the ‘Will it Blend’ treatment

Love them or hate them, every year Blendtec tests out its latest power blender against the latest tech toys. Normally we don’t have to wait very long for the latest iPhone to get the treatment; last year it was on launch day and the blending managed to upset quite a few folks who couldn't get their hands on one for whatever reason. This year we have had to wait a few weeks since launch and it’s done a bit differently to normal. Blendtec has pitted the iPhone 5 against the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Apple and Samsung move from love/hate to hate/hate

Apple seems to be moving to reduce its reliance on Samsung for the manufacture of the A-series processors found in iOS devices, and are possibly planning a move to another company for the production of future chips. While Apple and Samsung have been at odds in the smartphone market, they've remained close partners in manufacturing. The increasing rivalry between the two companies when it comes to the former is cited as the reason for their deteriorating relationship when it comes to the latter. The The Korea Times reports that love-hate might be turning into pure hate.

Apple may say goodbye to Samsung for quad-core chips

Apple may be changing chip manufacturers as it moves towards quad-core processors in its iOS devices over the next couple of years. While Samsung has produced the chipsets for most iOS devices so far, including the Apple-designed A6 found in the iPhone 5, it may not be the direction Apple will head in the future.

Samsung ad takes yet another shot at iPhone lines, new iPhone 5 features

Samsung has rolled out another of its ads that aim to poke fun at Apple iPhone 5 buyers and those that plan on waiting in line for one tomorrow. Samsung released a similar ad last year just after the iPhone 4S went on sale; so these poor attempts at advertising and humor from Samsung are nothing really new. This latest ad is supposedly there to promote its Samsung Galaxy S3 under the heading of “The Next Big Thing Is Already Here”.

Bored now.

There's a sentiment -- part genuine, part manufactured -- running through the technology community that, following the iPhone 5 event, Apple has become boring. That the iPhone looks pretty much the same this year as it did last. Of course, this meme is unburied, reanimated, and set to lurch following every new device announcement. Apple leaves themselves open to it because, for the last 3 releases, they've been iterating on essentially the same hardware design. They're not rolling dice. They're not spinning chaos. They're relentlessly working towards something they've had in mind since 2005. Something inevitable. Something unmolested by the whims, vagaries, and expectations of kitsch and trendiness.

In that regard, Apple is boring. Especially when compared to...

Apple's more organized than Samsung

The above image shows an SSID some poor, frustrated member of the press used to express his or her frustration at trying to cover Samsung's Android and Windows Phone event live today at IFA 2012.

Clearly, if there's one thing Samsung isn't copying from Apple it's how to give a keynote. At the Galaxy S3 event, a female Samsung executive did the PR equivalent of spit take after hearing Samsung's new, tinkle-like audio tone, presumable for the first time.

At Unpacked today, Twitter seems to be of the collective opinion a male Samsung executive actually uttered an expletive on stage -- "We heard a lot of [beep] about sharing tonight."

It's a pity because some of the devices Samsung showed off look interesting, if not a little familiar...

Xperia, Galaxy Note, Ativ-S, Galaxy Camera: New Sony, Samsung phones come out to play at IFA 2012

Our Mobile Nations sibling sites, Android Central, and WPCentral are live at IFA 2012 in Berlin, Germany, and since Apple doesn't attend any shows but their own -- expected on September, 12, of course -- that leaves the stage wide open to companies like Sony and Samsung to show off new Xperia T, Galaxy Note 2, Ativ-S, and other devices. Here's what we've seen so far...

Samsung executive says $1 billion verdict was the worst case scenario, Google says it was more Samsung than Android

In the matter of Apple's $1 billion verdict over Samsung, we've already had two separate, yet equally important PR statements. Since then, a Samsung executive has said it's their worst case scenario, and Google, not surprisingly, has tried to keep Android well away from the fallout.
