    He started out on techtv on a show called The Screensavers but has since moved on to YouTube it seems. Might be getting too old now judging by his endless ranting and forgetting where things go

    Oh Samsung came in and put the spen in backwards on his show?

    I need to find this show and watch it.
    here you go:

    start from 48:47, where the Rene Ritchie of iMore.com starts talking


    a later video where he talks about it over and over throughout the show

    From a product design standpoint, I am 100% there with you. There is no good reason why Samsung should have designed a product that can so easily be used in a manner that will damage the product. This is bad design from a Design101 perspective.

    Further, the only thing worse than baking-in a design flaw and not catching it in your internal design reviews and eventually in your usability testing is to then rely on band-aids to cover up bad design once in production:
    - User Manual instructions that endeavor to keep the user from hurting her/himself or the product
    - Warning signs on the product itself

    So, bad on Samsung for this? Yes.
    But, Leo was just being Leo on the show. He could have heeded the advice of others not to put the S-Pen in backwards. But, we wouldn't want Leo any other way.

    Except Samsung didn't come in and put the spen in the phone, Leo did and Leo broke it.

    oh well, it's all now a moo point anyway because a plain straw can now easily fix the problem.

    Someone's got to forward Leo this video from Flossy Carter (skip to 8m46s into the video)...

    That's what I was afraid of. You young people don't know who he is.
    Leo hosted tech shows on TV, but for my generation of seniors.

    See Leo Laporte videos that I linked to in post #29 above.

    He tried to exchange it at AT&T and they basically told him "try Samsung" instead.

    He owns multiple phones on different carriers, so he can try them out and review them for listeners. It's a different deal, than someone just having one device

    Leo Laporte is a good guy and I've been watching him for years. That said him putting the spen in backwards of his fault and no one else's. It's definitely not samsungs. No company can accommodate for every stupid thing someone might do. I know personal responsibility is a thing of the past these days but it certainly applies here.

    You don't sign a contract when you pay full price for a phone. The reason for the contract is to recoup money for a subsidized phone price.

    In the days of TechTV, Leo was a beacon of information for me as I started learning about computers. Dating myself, but I loved that network. (Edit: Actually, I was just reminded it was ZDTV for a few years before it became TechTV.)

    Yeah, I started watching at the end of ZDTV. Those shows were the ones that got me into computers and tech in general.

    As for Morgan Webb, well, she's just attractive to me and she is smart so that made the attraction even greater
