As of 7 December, 'Sunday' will be the first independent film to be launched over five different distribution platforms at the same time.

Samsung announces arrival of Note 4 and other toys, fails to reach Apple-level product launch mania

Battle of the big screens

Despite Steve Jobs' antipathy towards big screens, Apple launched the 14cm iPhone 6 Plus (and a couple of other things) last week.

Now it's followed those up with another feisty spot that talks about the initial negative response to its big, "more productive, more innovative, more fun" Galaxy Note and the ensuing scramble from other manufacturers to follow suit.
