    Apple and Samsung may be out of the court room with all the patent disputes, but it seems that both companies continue to compete at something. For the longest time, Samsung has overshadowed Apple in smartphone sales, and that does make sense since Samsung serves every single market segment, while Apple only focuses on ...

    A few years ago, anybody would've believed that Samsung's growth momentum was invincible. The Korean giant not only managed to make more profit than many of its competitors combined, but it is still the biggest cellphone seller in the world.

    So much of our discussion of the Galaxy S6 has focused on hardware – whether that's choice of SoC, external design, or support for accessories – that's its tempting to gloss over the software that will ultimately run on the upcoming Samsung flagship.

    Microsoft had some big announcements last week. Announcements that left your head spinning, once you took Marty McFly Jr’s headset off that is.
