    Did anyone else catch the Samsung keynote the other day where Bill Clinton went up to give a speech endorsing Samsung devices? Samsung is pretty powerful and has lots of connections.

    And.....? No seriously, and? Use what you like, not what others tell you to. No, not as an Apple fan. I don't own everything Apple makes, I have alternates. (if you were going that road)

    Alternates like.....?

    Search up the Samsung keynote live coverage on techcrunch like http://m.techcrunch.com/2013/01/09/join-team-techcrunch-live-from-samsungs-2013-ces-keynote/

    Whereas Apple uses no name actors for endorsement, Samsung uses a President of the United States!!!

    Clinton was there in support of Samsung's "Hope for Children" initiative, as part of the worldwide Clinton Foundation's public health and educational efforts.

    "Hope for Children" provides technology for children's classrooms, hospitals and charities.

    Best Buy, Lowes, Sears, PC Richards and other major companies are partners with this Samsung initiative.

    I have a Mac, but I have a dedicated custom (and self) built desktop running Windows 8, a nice Kindle Fire instead of an iPad.

    I can go on. I do have an iPhone, but its mute seeing as I only use one phone.

    You don't go to CES just to do that. Clinton was on stage in a Samsung keynote about Samsung products.

    Maybe he cares about the children a bit more than you do.

    That's corny. It's CES, not World Vision. Having a President of the United States go up on stage during the Samsung product unveilings is a huge endorsement.

    You do realize, those were paid endorsements, and Bill here didn't do a product endorsement. See what kdarling said.

    Bill Clinton lied about his affair so...I don't believe him for a second when he says Samsung devices are good devices. :)

    Samsung didn't do their research cause the browser crashed on their phones...OPPS!

    You do realize Apple has demonstrated products at their Keynotes and had technical difficulties, right?

    I don't care who got on stage. It doesn't make me want to buy a product any more.

    Yo chill out. This is a fun thread and there's no room for PMS fighting...

    I never said Samsung had on stage malfunctions. I was poking fun at how they didn't look into a more credible endorsement candidate.
