Steve Jobs effect on the tech industry is still being felt
Many were anxiously awaiting the announcement of the
Galaxy Nexus smartphone on October 11
, as the smartphone will spearhead the launch of
Ice Cream Sandwich
(the next version of Google's Android mobile operating system). However, both Samsung and Google have decided to postpone the event.

Earlier today, the two companies issued this joint statement:
Samsung and Google decide to postpone the new product announcement at CTIA Fall. We agree that it is just not the right time to announce a new product. New date and venue will be shortly announced.
However, later today, a Samsung spokesperson confirmed that the reason for the delay was out of respect for Steve Jobs:
We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs's passing. We do not have information on the rescheduling of the event.
Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs
died on Wednesday at the age of 56
. He battled pancreatic cancer and later received a liver transplant. Jobs temporarily left Apple on medical leave three times to address his health concerns. He
vacated his duties
as CEO of Apple in late August, handing over the baton to Tim Cook.

LOL, I respect Steve Jobs greatly....but please, only shleps buy overpriced and underpowered Apple products. There were better MP3 players out there, better phones, better tablets, and obviously better computers. Apple wasn't first with a single product, they invented nothing. Sure, they captured the lemmings and made many of these products popular, but they invented nothing new here.

Hmm, so, short form.
Once again, any one that doesn't like the products that you do... is a sheep (or shlep).
