Not for me.. If it's too much for a one handed phone, just give me a full laptop. Having to carry these multiple layers of devices, just seems silly. A mid sized smartphone that you can put in your pocket for easy access and a laptop for doing real work on the go. If it is too big for a laptop, it goes on a server.

Comment Let it dual boot stock (Score 2) 122

If Samsung wants developers and users play with Tizen, why don't they have all / most of their phones dual boot with both android and tizen as the alternate. The people who aren't interested won't probably even notice it is there. The developer and power users will be able to start playing with it and possibly gain interest / marketshare.

Comment Gaining more profit for protection (Score 3, Insightful) 44

I'm betting, Tumblr is doing it's best to seem as profitable as it can be considering the possible Verzion buy. Tumblr want to make sure they look as good as they can do they don't get axed by Verizon if the deal goes through.

My bigger concern is Verizon's buyout causing a change of TOS in Tumblr. Tumblr had the same issue when Yahoo bought them. Yahoo tried to clamp down on the adult material but for the most part if failed. Will Verizon do the same? Tumblr is one of the few mainstream places where adult material can be posted without TOS violations.
