Am never letting go. Facebook is gone, whatsapp will be gone by the end of the year. No snapchat I still don't care I will continue using BlackBerry 10 until it goes on extinction.

What do you see when you look at that light green line up above? A massive dip in Samsung's smartphone sales volume, that's what. This has been the story for the South Korean electronics giant's smartphone division as of late, and we know that the company won't stand idly – a near 10% drop in market share over the course of just one year is pretty worrying, after all. From what we know so far, Samsung will be going with a two-pronged approach – first, it'll slash the absolutely ridiculous number of marginally different devices it produces by as much as 30%, and also invest in tech that competitors will have a hard (if not impossible) time mimicking or outright copying. Right now, this means advanced display solutions, including foldable screens that the company claims it will be able to produce in small quantities (30,000 to 40,000 per month) in the latter half of 2015, but it could be working on something else entirely at the same time, too. In any … [Read more...] about Poll: Is Samsung’s dominion over the smartphone market coming to an end?
On Monday, we showed you the chart above and told you to pay attention to the light green line and its trajectory. A quick glance at the legend will reveal that it is Samsung's market share it is representing, and its piece of the pie has gone down significantly over the last few quarters – close to 10%, or a little less than a third its total sales. As you can imagine, that's not just your typical fluctuation in the market, and all the evidence suggests that Samsung is genuinely worried – we know that it'll be slashing about 30% of its existing products in order to better focus on fewer devices, and it is also banking on tech that it considers hard to mimic, like advanced display solutions. It's likely that the company is also up to something else entirely that we don't know about. Which is why we asked you, does that thin line indicate the beginning of the end of Samsung's dominion in the smartphone market? Or can the company bounce back and reclaim … [Read more...] about Poll results: Is Samsung’s dominion over the smartphone market coming to an end?
After nearly 40 years, Moore’s Law, an observation about the evolution of computers, made back in 1965 by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, is coming to an end. We have been hearing predictions about Moore’s Law ending around 2020 at the 7nm node, where manufacturing difficulties are said to become too challenging, but the reality of the situation is actually different.Problem with such hypothesis is that Moore’s Law is formulated not just for transistor size and efficiency - it’s also about component cost. Here is the exact definition of Moore’s Law, as proposed by Moore:Hearing about the end of Moore's Law around the same time when Intel unveils 14nm Broadwell chips scheduled to come by the end of the year might be strange, but there are plentiful reasons to back up such statement. In order to understand the reasons, you just have to look at the chart below, shown by ST’s Joel Hartmann, showing how cost starts drifting off the vector at 20nm and … [Read more...] about Moore’s Law is coming to an end
