Back in the day, I could have cared less about non-iOS device leaks.
If it wasn’t an iPhone or an iPad, it didn’t matter.
The only leaks that interested me were about Apple.
Whenever a new Apple product was announced – or rumored – I’d scour the interwebs, looking for photos or reviews.
I’d follow endless threads of speculation about which features would be included and which would not.
I would consume any article from any source like manna from heaven.
But if it wasn’t an Apple product, I could give two shits.
But yesterday, something unusual happened.
I saw a Techcrunch article with leaked pictures of a Samsung.
It was the new Samsung device, the Galaxy S IV.
And I found myself…
Wait for it…
Reading the article!
Who knew that there was this whole other world of leaks?
Who knew that non-iOS leaks were newsworthy?
Who knew the Chinese were as inept at keeping Samsung’s secrets as they were Apple’s?
I have to admit that I was intrigued with what this new Samsung has to offer.
Although I despise Android devices, they’re giving Apple a run for their money.
In fact, Samsung is outselling Apple in China.
Analysts predict that Samsung will completely overtake Apple when it comes to innovation with mobile devices.
So they must be doing something right.
But if leaked photos weren’t enough, now there’s a video too!
Notice the background iPad audio in the video.
Ironic, isn’t it.
If these leaked photos are any indication of the public’s interest and penchant for non-iOS devices, then I need to pay attention.
I must be ill.
