The back of the new Galaxy S5 looks like a band-aid, they should have just kept the leather look. I also wish they would have made more of a curve in the fitness wrist wear and not a slight curve. You say you have to technology so what not give the thing a good curve.

why do they release a new one every year?

why not release one every two years and make actual improvements in performance?

lurking in the shadows but most likely destroyed. i assume it wont be making a reappearance despite my edits.

i re-phrased it by explaining that a 12" 'device' was rumored, but i guess its for the best. I honestly read the "iPad + keyboard" and took that as a new macbook product category that would be launching.

I still think the MacBook Air is heading this route... Maybe not this year but in a few years... =)
