Samsung s5
looks very enticing. My HTC Thunderbolt is 3 1/2 years old and is perfectly fine, it breaks my heart to upgrade but I think I might.  The only thing my thunderbolt has failed at is syncing with my Ford Escape system and I want that capability.

Samsung Galaxy S4
The price is $189.99 to be precise, but what's amazing is that the old Samsung Galaxy S4 is now free with contract, plus AT&T is now offering $100 for first time customers on apebay.com/cellphones  I paid $200 plus the activation fee just last year.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S4
The GS5 is the interesting bit in this gen of smart devices. The original gear did not do well however, I feel that if the gear 2 can off-set functionality just enough then consumers will begin to opt for smart watches rather than, traditional watches -- allowing consumers to divert some of their cash towards tech. Now is an important time that will determine the future fate of smart watches.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S4
@BillM236 interesting, so the smartwatches are following the pattern set for cell phones. Get your device free or discounted with contract.

Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
