Here are the 11 accessories you can buy for the new Galaxy S 4

Samsung’s microsite for the Galaxy S 4 showcases 11 accessories that weren’t mentioned during the keynote. I’m not going to run through all of them, you can do that yourself, but I will mention the two that I think stand out. Pictured above is the “S View Cover”.

It’s one thing to say that the GS4 looks a lot like the GS3. It’s another thing altogether to see the two devices being compared on video. It’s almost scary.

Forget watching the hour long keynote, forget endless searching for hands-on photos, The Verge has produced a four minute video that sums up today’s announcement perfectly. Just watch it and go on about the rest of your day, because honestly, you’re going to have to wait until this device starts shipping to get any actual useful information about it.

I’m sorry, but I just couldn’t sit through Samsung’s live stream. It was so over the top, so ridiculous, so “trying hard to funny, but not succeeding”, that I simply had to close my browser window and start digging up the real news.

The Galaxy S IV unveiling is now less than 10 hours away, but that hasn’t stopped Samsung from announcing two budget phones in South Africa today called the Galaxy Pocket Neo and the Galaxy Star. They’re both pretty much the same phone, except that the Pocket Neo has 3G support, whereas the Star does not.

LG is a company that I have a hard time trying to understand. Samsung’s strategy is to copy Apple, and they sometimes even add a little bit of their own innovation on top. Sony’s strategy is to look at what they’ve done in the past and try to bring back some of that classic industrial design. Even the Chinese companies are doing their own thing.

Samsung’s “next big thing” is going to be announced in roughly 17 hours. What do I know about it? It’s going to look a lot like the Galaxy S III. It’s going to come in two colors. It’ll likely come with an Exynos processor in some parts of the world, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon in other parts. Which countries get which processor? That I don’t know.

Nostalgia is a dangerous thing. I feel like the internet was a better place back in 2006 and 2007, but I don’t have any proof. In those days, the word “blogger” wasn’t a derogatory term. No one dared to call themselves a journalist, because that’s not what we were. We, which I’m going to define as people who have been writing stuff online for over half a decade, wrote essays to each other. We’d link to each other’s work, have civilized arguments, and every once in a while we’d get together to have a few beers.
