A periodic roundup of relevant news from our friends at Zatz Not Funny…
Dave Zatz: Late last week, Steve Jobs cut his Hawaiian vacation short so that he could respond to iPhone 4 reception concerns with a press conference. The takeaway seems to be that most smartphones suffer degraded network performance when held in specific ways, but the issue is overblown in real world usage.
Dave Zatz: Samsung’s making a splash with their new, high-end line of Android ”Galaxy S” handsets. And while they’ve already launched overseas, the US variants with custom enclosures and functionality, start rolling out today.
Dave Zatz: Since receiving a Samsung Galaxy S review unit, with remarkable super AMOLED display, I’ve been loading up on all sorts of Android apps. Of course, Slacker, Twitter, and SlingPlayer were some obvious first stops. But I suspect there’s a number of folks who don’t realize there’s an unofficial Sonos controller app floating around out there.
Mari Silbey: After three months on the market, the iPad has started to build up a decent range of games designed specifically for the tablet’s ten-inch screen.
