Keep it locked to AC for all your IFA 2014 coverage


It's always pretty much plain and simple nothing beats Samsung or the Galaxy Note products period they are Android nothing else matters.

Yay. More useless comments that add absolutely nothing intelligent to the conversation, and will undoubtedly spin off more of the same.

How can you guys be so dumb and still fall for his comments? I just laugh everytime I see his name. Hail Richard!!

Also, I notice a new commenting section. Did this just go live? Besides the up/down voting, anything else special?

Tomorrow will be good. Unpacked Asus and Sony? Not to mention LG and Intel the following days. Throw in Moto and the rest of the week will be something to look forward to.

Awesome new comment section, AC!
Finally we get larger avatars, better and more visible threading, and up/down voting (which means we won't have to see as many useless "This," comments! :-P

And I can click this little blue triangle to report your individual comment! Neat!

No but really, they sure do. I want to go through every article and leave comments now just to look at how it displays. :-P

I think they need a scoreboard on most reported commenter. Richard doesn't count

Damn, now I can't reply "This" or "+9000" anymore, lol. Because, if I do, somebody will get butthurt and report my post, haha.

These are all nice features, but it seems like a lot of wasted space with the size of the margins of the comment boxes and the white space between the boxes - only 3 comments appear on my screen at once, so a lot more scrolling than the old view.

Yes, I'm excited about seeing something / anything new and innovative like YOUM display technology, for example, on the Note 4 that NoNexus touted ad nauseum over the past six months.

With the accelerating evolution of technology we are all blessed with, same ole, same ole just doesn't cut it anymore.

Without a doubt, I cannot wait! Good to see you will be joining us for the announcements

Looking forward to it. Most looking forward to a Moto 360. I wish Motorola made another tablet as well. I want a Motorola tablet badly :-(

Haha, I'll say. OOOH!!, somebody vote me down! I want to see if it works!!!

I feel like this vote feature is going to get out of hand, and fast, hahaha.

It might kind of neat to have the comments voted down move lower and lower in position relative to the neutral comments (no votes) and the positive comments (plus ones). Theoretically, you could have the most important or welcomed comments seen first, and the spam posts and troll posts could be ignored and pushed all the way to the bottom of the page.


How come you haven't covered Lenovo's 8" Tab S8? Many other sites have and it looks pretty nice. Also, it's $199.00

I'm hoping to see what Sony are about to release. Very happy Xperia Z1 Compact & Z2 Tablet owner here. Does anyone think they might be tempted to use the Z/Compact devices as a 'base' & create their own VAIO W-series Windows Phone handsets?

When do we hear from MOTO at IFA? There not listed in the schedule or events. After watching the zenWatch info this morning, hopefully we'll hear all the official details on the Moto360 and a release date.

Moto isn't at IFA, they have their own event in Chicago today. Speaking of which, we haven't heard much about that, AC. Are you going?
