Samsung event for May 28th to focus on health

Samsung event for May 28th to focus on health
San Francisco is going to be really full of us mobile-type media, starting at the end of this month. On May 27th, LG is expected to unveil its next flagship phone, the LG G3, at simultaneous events in San Francisco and New York City. From June 2 through June 6, Apple will be holding its annual WWDC in the city by the bay. And in between, on May 28th, San Francisco will host an event being held by Samsung, related to heath.

Considering that the invite came from the semiconductor arm of Samsung, the thinking is that this will be an announcement related to new health-related sensors, as opposed to being a new product introduction. The invitation teasingly says "Be there when it starts." Samsung states that the event will begin at 10:30am PDT on the 28th of this month.

Circle the date on your calendar. As soon as we know what the event will be about, you'll know.

Oh Please... Like Apple's pathetic 'gym rat placing his finger over the iPhone 5s camera flash' in their latest commercial ONLY after Samsung include an ACTUAL heart rate monitor in the Galaxy S5. Lay should off the Apple 'Sauce' - You Apple iDIOTs are so beyond pathetic at this point. ... and you can save some inane nonsense about this or that feature has been around 'for-eva' because the same can be said about pretty much Every Feature On the iPhone.

Apple is still using Samsung or other OEM parts. Nothing to write home about. While others develop 3G 4G 5G. Apple brag about slide to unlock and claim its worth multiple billions when infringe. Apple fans are to be blame as well as you encourage Apple anti consumer behavior.

So its either everybody copies Apple...or when others release it first....they wanna beat Apple to the punch before Apple steals the thunder with their announcement... Seems all sides will be covered with arguments like this.... Not saying what you say is a bad idea or even trolling...its smart. Just something I thought about reading your post...

"We record your health stats and sell them to governments, intelligence agenies, data brokers, and most importantly, insurance companies, so you can pay more for your health insurance." Of course, this is the same as Apple, so when the iZombies accept Apple's latest "Healthbook" data rape, Samsung's S-Robots will go along with it too.
