A very false narrative: Samsung Galaxy S8 vs Apple’s iPhone — It’s hard to escape the media pronouncements that iPhones are now boring again after Samsung unveiled its latest Galaxy S8, Apple’s Mac business is being overshadowed by more exciting Surface Windows PCs from Microsoft and that Apple Watch is a disappointing dud. But all of those media narratives are wrong, according to Daniel Eran Dilger, and here’s why.
Meanwhile, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has delivered a Samsung spoof ad. From the narrator: “When our engineers designed this phone, they asked one simple question: how can we design a smartphone that won’t catch on fire?”
The answer? “The Galaxy S8 has been completely overhauled with revolutionary new features like larger screen display, better camera, and no fire.”

The report notes that the new Apple Music service could host upwards of 10 original shows by the end of 2017. [Don’t speculate, wait and see.]
