Listen: Has Samsung run out of ideas with the Galaxy Note 10?
"Our right so let's just <hes> i guess get into it. I think spurs galaxy note ten ten not one but two there is the ten there is the ten plus and wait for it. There is the ten plus five g mm-hmm so i have to say your your your key. The key indicator their product line has run out of ideas and apples guilty of this too when they start bringing colors out to the ipod lied. That's when you do that. Device was in trouble and the pris- matic back that they're advertising think for this. I think there's some solid tech care but i'm just saying it doesn't bode well christina on my opinion. We'll right okay so we're going to kind of. Let's get into this because this. These are two big bones so there is there's the writer note ten now. Keep in mind. The note is the smartphone. That basically is responsible for the fabric tab that we all have now. I remember when the first one came out. I think it was like five inches or something and we were like. No one needs a phone this big. This gigantic was the point of vests and people like myself. Were very anti the big phone. Thing <hes> says the woman who now has a tennis max and but over over the years you know the the notes series you have a regular galaxy s series which is kind of like they're kind of flagship and then you have the note series that comes out a couple of months later <hes> usually has some some of the same high in features sometimes even more powerful and then it adds the ability to use the stylus and and and write on it and this year there are two there is the the regular note ten and then the jumbo as the verse has no ten plus now. These are expensive phones now. This is the first time that samsung is <hes> joining apple and basically other rather smartphone company out there and getting rid of the headphone. Jack neil patel at the verge is very angry but i think this is. What do you think that i don't care. I think just because after apple did as annoyed as i was i was like well deal with an adapter by need to but otherwise otherwise like a just kind of lead me into my ear pod existence that i i'm in now and i still won't say i. I won't say it took courage because because it really didn't but it does kind of prove that everybody just follows apple. I mean i guess my frustrations. I didn't win when i voiced like not being absorbed up loss to the headphone jack i didn't realize at that point just how bad air pods were for the environment and spoiler really bad. Nobody recycles <hes> <hes> <hes> they're. They're terrible in that sense but that said you know this is a headache. I have to say comes up consistently <hes> not being able to have that that headphone jack back it it all the time like i think i've three cases of i three three different pairs of air pods at this point so it's not bad i it just. I don't know what's worse. I'm always hunting around for my other air pod trae majett. The case is kind of a pain in the butt in a different way but that said it's the future. Her move forward got bigger stuff to stress in yeah. Totally i think for me. The big thing is that <hes> i was already using bluetooth headphones for the most part when yeah that happened i was using my beats and then i embraced the airport alive and i still use other bluetooth headphones. The only area where it's kind of annoying is if i am wanting to like if you use your pods other than air pods wired ones the lightning ones. You can't use those with your laptop. Yeah that's the one frustrating thing and again airports kind of care that you can switch between the bluetooth inputs but but that's you know it takes more more time than just like unplugging plugging back in. Let's talk about this phone a little bit more so in addition to not having the headphone jack some of the pluses that has the note ten starts at nine hundred fifty dollars. There's so these are expensive phones. Ten plus starts at ten ninety nine. Note ten has eight gigs of ram and a two hundred six gigabytes of storage. The note ten plus plus is like i said one thousand nine dollars it has to fifty six gigs storage and if you spent another hundred dollars you get five twelve gigs of ram and it has has twelve gigs of storage it has twelve gigs of ram and then there is also a new five g. which is only available on reisen <hes> for right now so so these are really powerful phones i mean i'm sorry like eight gigs of ram in a phone. There are laptops talks. That apple sells the max ram. You can have in that laptop a gigabytes. That's so this is. I don't know this. I'm still kind of in this place. Where i'm mike phone has how much ram now like yeah eight and twelve gigabytes were getting into like real like real computing territory when we hear that makes sense because you know the marina phone is obviously solid state ramp laid a lot more of a role when he had the through throughput was so much slower than it is today so <hes> i mean i was on the architecture team. There's really valid use case for it but it's just it from my perspective on the outside. It's it's hard to understand why that's that's needed or even what apps on the phone could take advantage of it. Yeah i mean i think that's that probably for me kind of the the bigger thing you could make the argument like i think that if you had eight gigs of ram or gigs of ram and an ipod then there you could make the state you could make the argument that there there will be developers not a lot of them granted but there would be developers who would build apps that would be able to take advantage of all that ramp and and to use it right. There opposite are exist right like garage japan. You could do it when the full version of photoshop comes out. You know things like that like like there are things bigger than saying the full version photoshop unscom alfredo feels like ten hundred years it does i mean adobe is promised that so you know but but like but i mean even the the most rams rams. I believe that the mousse max out ipad pro has i think it's still like six gigabytes or something how you get thirteen inch <hes> version and you have to have the like the one terabyte of storage like that's the only way you get that whereas these are now phones that have eight and twelve gigabytes with android. I just maybe maybe they do exist if they do like. Let let me know tweet me at all motor score go but i don't think that there are any android apps that are going to be taken advantage of this stuff so it almost feels like it's it's like okay well. This is because we're just gonna run every app in the background at full throttle at the same time. I'm not gonna say i'm not. I don't hate it. <hes> although one one of the things that that <hes> you know i guess on the flip side of this bit is part of the note series is decks. Which is this way where you can connect your phone to you know basically a computer and then access your phone that wayne kind of turn it into like a mini thin clients. I don't think anybody actually uses that. It usually doesn't work well but that's an option. I don't know you know the virtuous talking about this being very hyped for it. I did twit this weekend. Leo's very hyped for it. I mean at the very least if you've got a phone in front of you this this bank. I can imagine like using it for note taking i mean maybe there's a way to get it hooked up to illustrator and you can actually use the vector pressure there. I know i can i can see uses for that. I think i think if my pat i yeah no if my ipad pro hooked to my mac and i could use the the apple pencil with i'm sure i would use that well yeah. I mean and i think that's interesting and obviously there's some things that microsoft is doing with windows ten and in disclosure. If you didn't hear the beginning of the show i work at microsoft but i don't work on windows and i don't know any of these specifics but samsung and microsoft worked together to bring things to windows ten so that you can do the iphone app that is built into windows. Ten has more of like a kind of a better mirroring in and better kind of i guess"
