Group Therapy: New Microsoft Cortana Ad

Microsoft must have hired a different ad agency. Lately their ads have been pretty decent and this one is mildly amusing at worst and pretty clever at best.

 

iPhone 6 vs Nexus 4

Obviously the iPhone 6 launch has been dominating the news this week and iPhone fans are looking forward to their next upgrade. In typical fashion, Android fans are pointing out that some of the new features that iPhone 6 users can look forward to are already available on Android and have come up with a chart comparing the iPhone 6 to the Android Nexus 4 and there are a few similarities. The biggest point Android users are bringing up is that the Nexus 4 is already 2 years old so the phrase "If you need help with your iPhone 6's new features, just ask an Android users, we've had this stuff for years" has become popular amongst Android fanboys that are enjoying poking fun at Apple fanboys and keeping the Android vs Apple back and forth going. HuffingtonPost has the details.



SanDisk's new SD Card is Awesome

There was a time when if you wanted a large amount of storage in a camera card you had to go with a Compact Flash card. Now that those cards are all but dead, companies have been really pushing into the SD card space. It wasn't too long back that 256GB cards made their debut and now that size has doubled with the 512GB card from SanDisk. This is a UHS-1 card that promises crazy performance at a pretty crazy price at launch. If you need this kind of storage, it will set you back a mere $800.

SanDisk announced the Extreme Pro SDXC card (UHS-1) on Friday, the world's first SD card with room for 512 gigabytes of data — more than a half a terabyte of storage. To put that into perspective, 128GB is starting capacity for most Ultrabooks and the MacBook Air, and 256GB is common for most PC solid-state disk (SSD) drives today.

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.
