Samsung has run into the same perceptual problem that Apple did several years ago: at a certain point, each generation of your device is an evolution, not revolution — but the critics crave constant revolution.

When the facts didn’t suit his opinion, he simply changed the facts. Our request of The New York Times is simple and fair: please investigate this article and determine the truth. You are a news organization where that principle is of paramount importance and what is at stake for sustainable transport is simply too important to the world to ignore.

I won’t pretend to know who’s actually right or wrong here — Tesla certainly only has an interest in telling its side of the story — but the fact that a company has the tools and distribution to quickly publish something like this today is pretty amazing.
But many brands have established themselves as credible publishers. And why shouldn’t they be? They almost always know their industries better than the reporters covering them. And in many cases, their executives are actually great writers. [...] Some of my favorite things to read today are made by companies that previously had nothing to do with publishing.

“Game of Thrones” Review : The New Yorker
In the première, a ten-year-old boy was shoved out of a tower window. The episode climaxed with what might be described as an Orientalist gang rape / wedding dance. I figured I might catch up later, if the buzz was good.

Leonard Cohen spent years struggling with his song “Hallelujah.” He recalls being in a New York hotel room in his underwear, “banging my head on the floor and saying, ‘I can’t finish this song.’ ” He wrote perhaps as many as 80 verses before paring the song down and recording it on the 1984 album “Various Positions.” Then his label, CBS Records, refused to release “Various Positions,” not realizing that “Hallelujah” would become one of the most haunting, mutable and oft-performed songs in American musical history.

iPad mini Review | AnandTech
In my first week with the iPad mini, it quickly became the iPad I actually wanted to carry around. The mini’s form factor is really where all of the innovation is. It’s thin, light and an almost perfect balance of functional screen size and portability. I really love this form factor. In my life, a tablet is really an augmentive device rather than something that takes the place of a larger notebook. As such, I actually want something even more portable than the current Retina iPad and the mini delivers just that. It’s small enough that I don’t mind taking it with me, and it retains nearly all of what made the iPad such a great consumption device. I say nearly all because there are some definite tradeoffs when moving to the smaller display. Mainly all UI elements shrink in size, which can be a bit annoying when tapping small widgets (especially at the corners of the display). There’s always something to be given up in pursuit of ultimate portability.
A Retina mini? | AnandTech
None of these options is particularly enticing for Apple, especially given the low (for Apple), starting price for the iPad mini. If you’re expecting next year’s mini to have a Retina Display, I wouldn’t hold your breath.
AnandTech Doubtful on Chances for Retina iPad Mini Next Year | Daring Fireball
I feel certain the Mini will go retina, and that when it does, it will do so exactly like all previous iOS devices: same physical size, double the pixel resolution. The only question is when. The iPhone went retina in the fourth generation; the full-size iPad in the third. Seems like too much to ask for the Mini to do so in its second.
