Today, you can buy a Samsung Galaxy, a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, an HTC, an iPhone 4, and iPhone 5, a Motorola Droid, an LG Optimus G Pro, a Blackberry, a Nokia Lumia, a Google Nexus 4 etc etc etc.

What do all the tablets and smartphones have in common?

THEY ALL LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME, AND DO THE SAME F**KING THING. They run email, have maps, play your music and allow you to play Angry Birds.  Until Apple/Google/Samsung etc come up with something that looks like this:

iPhone on the palm, a total weight loss program

They all need to stop coming out with the latest 'iPhone/iPad Killer'. You can't come out with exactly the same thing over and over again, and pretend it's a new revolutionary product that will change the way you use your phone. Here was a recent CNNMoney headline:

So, the HTC looks like an iPhone, does exactly what and iPhone does, costs the same as an iPhone...you get the picture.
