Samsung killed the Galaxy Note 7 by rushing replacements

"Haste makes waste." That's an almost universally accepted nugget of wisdom that some people feel they're exempt from. That apparently includes Samsung, and now that folly is coming back to haunt it and bite it in the proverbial behind. Piecing together the timeline of incidents leading to the Galaxy Note 7's untimely demise, the Wall Street Journal painted a picture of a company that, in the desperation to look decisive and take swift action, may have, instead, actually brought about an earlier and total destruction of the Galaxy Note 7 and, perhaps, the Galaxy Note brand as well.

Samsung considers compensation program, LG batteries for future

The Galaxy Note 7 has truly shaken Samsung to its core. And those who think that the ripples are limited only to its mobile business, they better think again. There was even one report of a misbehaving Samsung smart washing machine. The company, however, has no choice but to try and move forward, and its next steps will determine whether consumers will retain confidence in the brand. Some of those steps, according to sources, include offering disgruntled Galaxy Note 7 owners some compensation as well as using LG Chem’s batteries for the Galaxy S8.

Samsung hurls DMCA at Galaxy Note 7 Bomb GTA 5 mod

Samsung hurls DMCA at Galaxy Note 7 Bomb GTA 5 mod

The use of satire and parody over the Internet isn’t new, but as always, humor doesn’t travel well over TCP/IP. And given its very nature, such jokes often end up offending involved parties. Unfortunately, there are times when the law can be used, or abused, by offended parties to their benefit. That may seem to be what Samsung has just done in using a copyright takedown notice against a popular GTA 5 mod that literally used the Galaxy Note 7’s explosive powers. Unfortunately, as with any legal, especially copyright, matter, things are not as straightforward.

Samsung’s 8 GB LPDDR4 DRAM chips are ready to invade mobile

It’s almost unbelievable that, just three years ago, we were still discussing the future benefits of the then new 64-bit mobile processors. But by next year, we might already be seeing smartphones and tablets with a whopping 8 GB of RAM inside. That will be thanks in no small part to Samsung’s new silicon that packs 8 GB of DRAM in a single tiny package, utilizes the fastest LPDDR4 technology, and boasts of the space and energy savings of a 10 nm process.

Samsung may have only one flagship next year, and that’s OK

It is no surprise that the disaster that was the Galaxy Note 7 would have ripples throughout Samsung’s business, particularly its mobile division. Projects are being put on hold in an effort to reduce expenses, which have been diverted to the recall of the phablet. Now Korean media are reporting that Samsung gird its loins even further, releasing only one premium smartphone per year, implying the demise of the Galaxy Note line. And, depending on how the Galaxy S8 and its successors turn out, that might actually be fine.

Galaxy Note 7 exchange kiosks open in Australian airports

The only way that things could get worse for Samsung is is one of the Galaxy Note 7 owners who thinks their device is safe and won't catch fire actually has a device that catches fire and does significant damage. There are those out there who have yet to return their defective devices and Samsung is pulling out all the stops to get these people to turn in the defective phones. Samsung has gone so far as to set up exchange kiosks in airports in South Korea and those exchange kiosks have now opened outside of Samsung's home turf.

Samsung Gear 360 camera now in stores: here’s where you can buy them

Samsung has long made it easy for consumers to get their hands on its Gear VR headset, sometimes even throwing it in with a new Galaxy smartphone purchase. But the camera to create content for VR? Not so much. That changes today with the wider availability of the Gear 360 camera. Formerly available only through online purchase, the handy 360-degree camera can now be bought from select brick and mortar stores across the country, making it even easier to craft content to be viewed on VR headsets.

Samsung ArtPC Pulse arrives with a slightly modular idea

Samsung ArtPC Pulse arrives with a slightly modular idea

Tempting fate, not to mention courts and lawyers, once again, Samsung has officially taken off the covers its self-described stylish desktop PC, the ArtPC Pulse. And it’s pretty much as we heard and seen it to be, including that oddly familiar cylindrical design. Of course, Samsung would argue how the ArtPC Pulse is so radically different in design as well as features. And, to some extent, it might be right, as the canister PC does have one thing Apple’s equivalent doesn’t: a somewhat modular design.
