Lastly Electrowing, check out the Specs on the Timex and Samsung Smart Watches, then tell me Samsung is light years ahead of the game.
Electrowing ... Samsung is a massive business conglomerate (Like IBM in the 80's, not very nimble). Quoting R&D figures hardly tell you much. And to be honest with you, I'm an Apple person myself, tried Samsung, because it was a bit cheaper, but ended up returning the product.
Apple might have something to say about Samsung being the technology leader that is 3 years ahead of everyone else.
Also, last I checked, Samsung was a S. Korean conglomerate, not a Chinese Company.
Ever heard of protecting your own?
Yep, $16 Billion is such a small number. And China will probably not grow going forward.
Are you sure you aren't short electrowing, you certainly approach HPJ with a negative bias : )
EV's and HEV's and PHEV's already getting very big in Northern CA. Seems like every other bus is some sort of electric hybrid.
As Samsung, LG, Motorola and lastly Apple (rumored) roll out their smart watches.
I remember my 1st Iphone. The "Woz" was there, and I got to meet him in person.
It was previously thought that TSLA would have extreme difficulty providing charging for its car buyers in China. Now they stand to be the largest (or one of the largest) provider(s) of charging in the nation. Funny how that works. China will want to have the best , fastest charging capability. TSLA has the patented technology to provide that, others don't.
US Fund in Deal to Build Myanmar Solar Plants
he investment will be the largest by a U.S company in Myanmar following the U.S. government's decision to suspend investment sanctions on the country after its democratic reforms in 2012.
RadioShack could buy out, say Best Buy Canada and declare itself a subsidiary, thereby affecting a tax inversion and possibly turning itself around : )
Motorola 360 Smartwatch Specs are still foggy, more when it is released on Sep 4th.
LG Smartwatch Specs -
LG was the first to announce its G Watch R, which features a 1.3-inch circular plastic OLED display, 4GB of storage, 512MB RAM and a durable 410mAh battery. The device, which runs on the Android Wear operating system, is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor from Qualcomm.
And the Timex Smartwatch Specs:
Rechargeable Lithium-Ion (HPJ)
Standby: 72 hours
GPS and cellular connected: 8 hours
GPS, cellular, and music player running: 4 hours
Look to be identical to the Samsung Smartwatch battery?
But of course, electrowing must be right in his statement that "Samsung tech is a few years ahead of any other on the planet : )"
Yes, in some respects Samsung's tech is better, but I'm sure many would beg to differ with your blanket statement. As for Samsung designing their own battery, I certainly hope that will be the case. My point is, was, there is about to be a major push into wearables.
Samsung's Smartwatch Specs - On the hardware side of things, the Gear S has a curved 2-inch Super AMOLED 480×360 screen — similar to the curved screen of the Gear Fit, but larger and higher resolution. There’s a dual-core 1GHz SoC, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and a 300 mAh battery — which Samsung claims will give you two full days of “typical usage.”
But the author of the article I'm reading, is skeptical on the battery life claim. Sebastian says, "The problem with the standalone smartwatch idea, though, is battery life. Samsung says the Gear S’s battery is good for two days of use — but with a 300 mAh battery, you probably won’t get more than a few hours if you use the smartwatch like an actual smart device. If you just want your smartwatch to show you the time and your notifications, then yes, current battery tech can get you two or three days of use. Throw in some actual work, though — like maintaining a 3G radio connection, or calculating turn-by-turn navigation — and you’re back down to just a few hours. I think we’re still a year or two away from chips and batteries that will allow for smart, useful wearable computers that last all day."
And Samsung is coming out with their Smart Watch a week earlier than Apple, beating them to the punch.
Didn't HPJ's Chief Scientist Cheng previously sell into Samsung as well as Apple?
But people are waking up and saying "I need to take a bus across town". The market for hybrid buses is growing fast and HPJ is right in the thick of it. 6.20 range is looking tasty , as I type.
Very True! Dinosaur with an incredible reach. Always thought that if someone wanted an immediate presence (Apple Stores, Microsoft Stores, etc..) , that RSH was a buyout candidate. Today and yesterday were short covering, but I have to agree, very dangerous.
Oil up a little after getting shalacked. That being said, expect to see Nat Gas and oil meet in the middle as the market moves more towards Nat Gas and more electric vehicles hit the road and autos get better mpg.
