Japanese Man Already Lined Up To Buy iPhone 6

A12m0v Re:An obvious hired shill (114 comments)

It is going to be a long line for him. We don't even know if there will be an iPhone 6. I have on good record that doomsday is 14/14/14.

ARM, Intel Battle Heats Up

A12m0v Re:Where are the products ARM? (260 comments)

No one can stop the x86 train, not even Intel. Medfield is only the start and while it might slaughter ARM it will make life very difficult for ARM SoC designers, let's just remind ourselves how many architectures by many vendors that were supposed to kill x86 just couldn't, not even Intel's. Not with iAPX480, i860 or i960 or Itanium.

Apple Intern Spent 12 Weeks Porting Mac OS X To ARM

A12m0v Re:NVIDIA (368 comments)

Except that nVidia's SoCs are weakest in graphics looking at the benchmarks. Imagination has them beat it isn't even funny. Even in a switch to ARM, nVidia might lose out.

Siri Competitor Evi Arrives, But Already Overloaded

A12m0v Not a real competitor to Siri (233 comments)

Putting all of Siri's capabilities that Evi can't match aside, we still got something that isn't built into the OS like Siri is. I don't see a reason to use this versus Siri unless you are on Android or an older iPhone.

Intel Relying On Ice Cream Sandwich For Tablet Push

A12m0v Medfield (215 comments)

Intel won't succeed with its first iteration but it will slow down ARM a bit in an overall growing market, Intel might even take the low to mid of the market and leave the high end to ARM for now as Medfield is only competitive with ARM processors from a year ago. Both ARM and Intel will gain marketshare and eventually the market might become split between them, I don't foresee a 3rd player, maybe MIPS in the form of the Chinese-derivative Loongson?

Intel Medfield SoC Specs Leak

A12m0v Dubious (164 comments)

Intel will need to bend the law of physics before their power hungry chips can match the the energy efficiency of ARM SoCs, but if anyone can do it it'll be Intel. Intel took x86 to workstations and supercomputers killing many RISC processors in the process. It'll be fun to see them pull it off again against ARM.

Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab Won't Get Android 4.0

A12m0v Re:No *official* port. (333 comments)

But do you really think that the average Joe knows about all these hacks and custom ROMs? Apple can use this fact to promote its iOS devices and show that with Android, in many cases, the user has to be the system integrator.
