Misguided Geek Friday Tech Update
Quick rundown of the Tech news of the day:
- THE IPHONE 5 IS HERE!1!!1! ZOMG GUYZ
- IOS6 came out earlier this week. Apple’s new map system has been met with… well lets say “mixed” results. In response Google is ramping up efforts to get its own IOS maps into the App store by Christmas.
- In mobile, non-Apple news HTC’s new Windows Phone offering, the 8x is getting some high praise. Featuring a uni-body design, Qualcomm S4 1.5 GHz dualcore processor, 16GB of storage and 1GB of RAM, HTC is looking to supplant Nokia as the “Signature Windows Phone.”
- In sad news Walmart and Amazon have decided to divorce officially, as brick and mortar retail giant tells the online retail giant that they will stop selling the Fire Tablets and Kindle e-readers, this mus burn Amazon as Target dumped the Kindles a few weeks ago as well. It never made sense to me, that two of the biggest stores were selling the flag ship products of their biggest threats, Amazon the online super store.
