Android beats iOS in smartphone loyalty

According to a new report, Android users are more loyal than their iOS counterparts. Both smartphones have a loyal following with Android having a 91% loyalty rate and iOS trailing with a still impressive 86%. TechCrunch has the story.

Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 may not quite live up to the iPhone X when it comes to Samsung’s implementation of a Face ID-style system or its odd take on AR emoji. But that’s not going to matter much to Samsung device owners — not only because the S9 is a good smartphone overall, but because Android  users just aren’t switching to iPhone anymore. In fact, Android users have higher loyalty than iOS users do, according to a new report today from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP).

World's Largest SSD is now 100TB

SSD storage is usually pretty small when compared to the mechanical counterpart, but that is changing with the latest drive from Nimbus Data. The drive is the ExaDrive DC100 and they manage to cram an incredible 100TB of data into a 3.5-inch drive. It won't fit in your laptop, and it certainly won't fit into many budgets at this time. The price isn't available, but it will be into the "tens of thousands of dollars". Still, it kind of makes me want to see how long it would take to fill up. Four of these in a NAS would be pretty epic.

As you might guess, this is intended for servers where capacity takes priority over everything else, including performance (the 500MB/sec is nothing to write home about). A data center could hold 100 petabytes of data in a single rack instead of needing large swaths of server room space. That's helpful for cloud services, AI and other technologies that may need massive amounts of data.

Facebook admits data mining might be even worse

Not surprisingly, Facebook has admitted that their Cambridge Analytica data mining/breach was worse than the 50 million users that they originally thought claiming the number could be now closer to 87 million. 

Chances are good it'll probably end up being even more, seeing as they don't really know how many accounts were used chances are good this number will continue to grow. BGR has the story.

Facebook’s ongoing charm offensive following the Cambridge Analytica scandal took a hit this week as the company revealed in a blog post that far more users than originally reported may have been affected by the breach.

Initial reports, such as this one from the New York Times, estimated that more than 50 million users had their private information harvested by the political data firm. But now Facebook says that up to 87 million people may have been affected. We don’t have to do any complicated math to see how shocking of a correction that is.

Samsung @ CES 2013

One of the highlights of every CES is a stop by the Samsung booth and this year didn’t disappoint. Samsung has so many products on display which makes it feel like walking through a candy story wishing you could have one of each. The big product in the TV market this year at CES is 4k displays (4096x2160 resolution) and Samsung had a bunch of those on display. Right now content is pretty tough to find in resolutions that high, but the demo clips that they were showing attracted quite a crowd.

Also on display was one of Samsung's curved OLED TV's. The curve in the screen wasn't drastic but it was enough to give the picture a bit of a different look and thanks to the OLED technology the picture was great.
