Even before the iPhone 6 has been launched! Do you smell that? The reek of desperation emanating from Samsung… Yeah, okay, maybe I went a little overboard fangirling with those statements, but seriously! The new Samsung Galaxy S5 ad was released on YouTube this week, all while speculation about the iPhone 6 is still rife. […]
In a new ad for the Galaxy S5, Samsung takes another potshot at Apple and its lovely users (yes, that’s us). That moment when your phone conveniently chooses the most inconvenient time to run low on juice. Switch your Galaxy S 5 to Ultra Power Saving Mode or swap in a fresh spare battery and […]
Apple’s ads are always something to look forward to – either to fall even deeper into the well of Apple enthusiasm or to criticize, depending on where you stand.
