Motorola Ad Mocks Samsung Ad Mocking Apple

An anonymous reader quotes BGR:
A few days after the iPhone X launched in stores, Samsung came out with an anti-iPhone campaign... I actually did not expect Samsung to pull off cheap tricks like that, but it sure looks like the iPhone X is a pretty scary device to fight against. But what probably nobody saw coming is Motorola trolling Samsung with an ad of its own... The "Up-upgrade to Motorola" ad offers the alternate ending to Samsung's ad, as Motorola explains on its Facebook page... Motorola doesn't even mention the iPhone X, so if you haven't seen Samsung's ad, you'd think it's just going after Galaxy handsets.
Elsewhere on Facebook, Motorola specifically referenced the attachable accessories available for their Moto Z when mocking the Galaxy Note 8.
"Why settle for edge-to-edge, when you could project your screen up to 70 inches?"

From Android to iOS – Introduction

My name is Chris Leckness and I’ve decided to write a series of articles about my transition from Android to iOS for my old friend Steve right here on AppleWorld.Today!

I recently made a jump from Android (Google Pixel XL) to iOS (iPhone X) and it’s been quite some time since I’ve used iOS as my daily device. I have had an iPhone 5C as my work phone but it's never on as I have my calls and text messages forwarded to my personal phone to avoid carrying two phones. Prior the iPhone X, the lastest iOS device that I used for more than a day or two was the iPhone 4, which I used for 6 months before returning to Android.

Before I start this series, I felt that it would be best to let the readers know where I come from and a little about me.

Who Am I?

Like I said, my name is Chris Leckness and I am from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I am a middle aged guy that has been in the smartphone game since around 2004 when I...

We can take some comfort in the fact that at least our technology improved dramatically.

Black Friday Deal: ECOVACS DEEBOT N79 robotic vacuum...

You've always wanted a robotic vacuum cleaner that you can control or schedule from your iPhone, right? But the price tag on some of these devices can be prohibitively high, so you've probably put off the purchase. ECOVACS has partnered with Apple World Today on a bunch of Black Friday specials on its line of iOS-controlled robot vacuum cleaners that will have you pulling out your wallet to make the purchase. 

My very own ECOVACS DEEBOT N79, standing ready to clean up!

The deals start with the ECOVACS DEEBOT N79 at 25% off -- that's $149.98. This is the same vacuum that got a 5-star review earlier this year from Apple World Today. This little robot cleans the upstairs part of our house several times a week, returning to its charging dock...

You can get up to a $150 gift card with your purchase, but that hardly compares to deals we’re seeing elsewhere. We’re also seeing significant accessory deals across the web
