iPhone 5 to put Galaxy S III to shame, Foxconn CEO says

Also less than complementary about Samsung

Samsung might seem like its own worst enemy with this week's choppy U.S. rollout of the hot new Android-powered Galaxy S III smartphone, but the top executive at iPhone maker Foxconn in China holds that title for now.

Earlier this week, Foxconn CEO Terry Gou was quoted in The China Times (translated by Focus Taiwan) as saying the iPhone 5 would put the Galaxy S III to shame. He also referred to Samsung as "a company with a track record of snitching on its competitors", referring to a Tawainese flat panel price-fixing scandal from a couple years back.

Apple and Samsung relations are tense, as the companies have been at each other's throats in court with assorted patent infringement claims, and Apple has attempted to prevent Samsung from selling the Galaxy S III in the United States. 

The Galaxy S III began rolling out through T-Mobile and Sprint in the United States today, and the 4G LTE device is set for delivery through AT&T and Verizon next month. Though reports of short supplies mean some hopeful early adopters have had to wait to get their hands on the phone.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
