Concerning technological innovation, 2013 was not precisely an exciting year. For instance, Apple, recognized for launching year after year the most innovative products, opted just for updating its familiar devices and selling them in different colors and sharper screens. Social media companies focused their attention on who had better photo filters, which is not quite ground-breaking as well. All in all, most Silicon Valley start-ups offered an average of slight changes on existing products. However, 2014 promises more fun and great surprises!
Samsung Electronics Co. clarified that its statement made last Tuesday was not entirely accurate. What was the slip-up? Just that the tech firm informed that it had sold more than 800,000 units of its new Galaxy Gear smartwatch since its launch two months ago, when the truth is that it only shipped the 800,000 pieces. From shipping to selling… should we call this a “smartmistake”? The answer lies beneath the facts and poor reviews about its new smartwatch.
