"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
Apple may not have been able to stop the launch party of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in West Hollywood at The Beverly, but that didn’t stop Rachel Sterling and Paula Labaredas from stopping the crowd dead in their tracks with their stunning good looks.
Trust me… These two girls in your path, are liable to stop anyone and anything. Matter of fact, I’m gonna stop writing.
Just take a look for yourself
Apple filed a lawsuit against Samsung claiming copyright, trademark and patent infringement from its Galaxy line of phones and tablets, claiming they are too similar to the design and operating system phone in Apple’s revolutionary iPhones and iPads.
Truth be told, there are definite similarities between the two phones. I myself own a Samsung Galaxy S 4G which I indeed love, but without a doubt, everytime I pull the phone out, everyone asks, “Is that an iPhone?” noting the similarities, yet apparent differences.
There are loads of developments coming out right now between the two companies, as to who came out with the phone design first, and who came out with the chip designs first. For sure this will be a fight to the finish.
But I also wonder what that will do with the impending merger between AT&T and T-Mobile, as AT&T is the first and main carrier for the iPhone before Verizon started carrying it earlier this year, and T-Mobile being the main carrier for the Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets. That’s like two moms that are best friends fighting over their kids.
The iPhone and Galaxy problems reminds me much of Apple and Windows, as Windows was made to emulate Apple’s user friendly operating system. We never saw Apple try to sue Windows, although that’s a history that requires several posts on its own.
Let’s see which 12 figure company wins
After 9 long years of the most annoying catch phrase sales slogan in corporate history… Verizon has decided to finally cut ties with their Verizon Man, played by actor Paul Marcarelli.
Paul made a small fortune acting as Verizon’s “spokesperson” to represent their clarity and coverage. He was contractually obligated to perform in 20-40 commercials per year, and he was paid up to $6,000 per commercial, which is actually a really low amount when you consider any nationally televised commercial. I guess the tradeoff was his steady work, which also included paid appearances.
Paul said the work did not come without a price. Paul, who is openly gay, would have young people drive by his home in the middle of the night yelling out “Can you hear me now fa@@ot !”.
Needless to say, he, and the rest of the world will be all happy to finally put “Can You Hear Me Now?” to silence.
