I love odd gadgets and weird technology. I like manufacturers that think at right-angles when it comes to designs and functionality. Yet Samsung's newly announced Galaxy Round, the Android smartphone with a curved AMOLED display like a techie taco, for all its new screen technology, leaves me cold. "Samsung's Galaxy Round is the epitome of in-fighting with LG" I tweeted last night. ""We got there first" and never mind if "there" is pointless." That prompted a discussion on how I could be enthusiastic about Samsung's Galaxy Gear, also derided by many in recent weeks, but not about the South Korean company's other more unusual designs. For me, it comes down to innovation versus excess.
