Whenever Apple has a misstep, the company is castigated publicly. Whenever Samsung has a massive problem that affects millions and costs billions, the technorati elite look the other way. Wil Gomez on a new Samsung product:
Word on the digital streets tells us that Samsung is working on a digital smartbelt. Uh huh. It’s another wearable device from Samsung’s Creative Lab, ostensibly designed to help your health by letting you know how many inches you’ve gained or lost. I really don’t want my belt telling my phone that I pigged out at Chili’s last night. Also, I don’t want a Samsung belt to melt the fat off my waistlines. Literally melt it off. With heat. And flames.
