Those who reviewed the phone applauded the fast processor, bright screen and superb camera. And it's waterproof! According to Forbes, which cited third-party data, the Galaxy S5 was selling much faster in its first week-and-a-half than the S4. Consider this. In the first 11 days of launch, the S5, which comes preloaded with smart remote app Peel, already had 1 million activations. By contrast, it took the Galaxy S4 five additional days to reach the 1 million activation mark. This gave Samsung investors hope that the company would put to rest the fear that the high-end device market is saturated, which seemed likely in its recent earnings results. So it remains to be seen whether Dong-hoon's dismissal is due to any… Is this Samsung acknowledging defeat -- that it has fallen short of the rumored features in Apple's iPhone 6? Well, it's also possible that Samsung is beginning to shift its focus on the heels of Apple's resurgence. In any event, it is clear is that Samsung no longer believe that its strategy of producing "very good -- but not amazing" phones can still work. Samsung has been content to go after the low-end device market. This is an area which Apple, despite pleas from investors and analysts, has ignored. To dominate that market, Samsung has gotten by with using plastic covering and other cheaper materials. That placed the phones at a much lower price. But this also limited Samsung's margins -- and its ability to make money.

And it's not just fries we're talking about here. Wendy's and Burger King have started to attack different parts of the menu upon which McDonald's built its success: breakfast items, the dollar menu, and frappes and coffee. Make no mistake about it, McDonald's was the king of fast food, but its throne has been under siege for the past few years. I used to go to McDonald's solely for its fries. I liked Wendy's burgers, but its fries used to be horrible. But now that McDonald's competitors have brought their fries up to snuff, it doesn't matter much to me what fast food restaurant I eat at. For the most part now, I prefer stopping at a Panera Bread (PNRA) or a Tim Hortons (THI) (but the secular… So McDonald's decision to introduce a new fry -- Shakin' Flavor Fries -- is a great move. The company needs something, anything to get customers coming back in the door. Trying to maintain the status quo is no longer working. New products are necessary, even if it's the successful original french fry that needs changing.
