All of these things are not like the others. Not one of these things really does belong.
To kick things off this week, we’ll look at two comparisons that are lost in time! Then another pundit doesn’t compare things at all—she just takes Apple in isolation. It’s easier to throw a fit that way. Finally, comparing XP to an easy-to-use tablet operating system? For real?Fails in comparison
Writing for GottaBeMobile, Adam Mills knows just what to compare the just-released Galaxy S5 to. The iPhone 5s? No, no, no. Don’t be silly. He’s going to compare it to 2012’s iPhone 5.

There’s a big case in this week’s roundup that’s designed specifically for small hands, while others bring together materials, from plastics to natural woods, to keep your tablet safe from everyday accidents big and small.BigGrips
The Frame (all iPad models; $35) includes a case made from a soft, non-toxic rubber foam that keeps your tablet safe and makes it easy for the little ones to get ahold of it, as well as a compatible stand that safely holds up your iPad at multiple angles, in both landscape and portrait orientations.
For many Apple haters and even more reasonable Android fans, the rallying cry for the last couple of years has been that Android is the better platform because you can get a larger display. What will those partisans rely on for proof of Apple's lack of innovation when the company addresses this segment of the market later this year?
Tech workers suing over an alleged no-poaching agreement among Silicon Valley firms are fighting an attempt by defendants to ban evidence that might portray Steve Jobs as a bad guy.
The case centers on alleged secret agreements struck among companies including Apple, Google and Adobe that they would not try to hire each others’ workers. The tech workers say that drove down their wages and restricted their mobility.
In the pretrial period, plaintiffs referred to materials such as outside blog posts referencing Jobs and Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the former Apple chief. Isaacson’s biography reveals both a “good Steve” and a “bad Steve.” People, in Jobs’ eye, were either “enlightened” or “an asshole,” Isaacson writes in the book.
