ios,

  • Death to #Whatsapp? A new instant message app with end to end encryption might be your future #killerapp - #Bleep.

    OK. I'm not sure this will take off enough to bring a death blow to the popular Whatsapp message service, but if the information I've read about Whatsapp security is anything to go by, I hope so.

    Bleep is a new messaging service with real security and privacy features built in. I have yet to try this out for myself, but I already use Bit Torrent Sync and I love it. I'll definitely be testing it out this week and hopefully have an idea know pretty soon if it has the capacity to be a Whatsapp killer. If Bleep did take off, that would mean a big faceplam for Facebook who purchased Whatsapp for a nearly $19Billion.

  • So, are you ready to say "overpriced piece of crap" #apple haters? #samsungsucks, turns out #appleisbetter

    I don't know how many times I've heard people say "overprice piece of crap" when talking about an Apple product. If course none of those people had ever used OS X and very few of them understood the value proposition of quality=longevity, free lifetime updates, lower maintenance costs and better user experience/improved productivity. They tended to think like: 4gb is better than 2gb. Thats where the "piece of crap" comment comes form, the inference that a lower hardware specification means a less capable device. The "over priced" part really happens because you can buy cheap PC's, but cheap I mean, cheaply built with budget plastic parts. But as soon as you get a PC with a similar build quality you will see that Apple products are not at all overpriced.

    The truth is that a devices quality and preformance depend on both hardware and software. Thet´s why Apple continually outperforms, because it develops both.

    So I got more than a little bit of Shadenfruede to learn that the new Samsung flagship phone is more expensive than the current iPhone and does't even hold a candle to it performance-wise.

    So Apple hater, is that  "an overpriced piece of crap"? I think it literally has to be.
