Misguided Geek Friday Tech Update
Quick rundown of the Tech news of the day:
Is this Amazon’s new Kindle Fire? The Verge threw up this “leaked” image just yesterday, showing a 4:3-ish tablet with an oddly placed camera. Pardon me while I yell “SHOPPED”! Verge must know someone at Amazon, because they also leaked the new Kindle Touch, featuring a new E-Ink display called Paper White.
More leaked images of the iPhone 5 (now from France) show more of what we already know: larger screen, center positions front facing camera, blah blah blah. What is most intriguing is that funky square chip on the top right just beside the top speaker. WTF is that for?
Apple beat Samsung in their long dawn out patent lawsuit, we already knew that. But, that was only in the states, over in Japan the ruling was quite diffrent, as Samsung won against Apple. Now Apple may owe Samsung money?
So tablets replaced ultrabooks right? Could new hybrids (tablet/laptop crossovers) be the next big thing? I mean the Microsoft Surface is in essence a hybrid right, now HP, Asus, Dell, and Lenovo are all coming out with hybrids of their own. Not all the functions of a laptop, with none of the portability of a tablet… do not want.
