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.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The homepage is a grid of icons with 4 icon dock in the bottom,
And needs 8 GB of ram!!!!
They had a chance of making a comeback with their Palm acquisition but they fucked that one up.
It would be funny if it weren't most probably true.
/. is news for nerds not news for Microsoft shills. Get your head straight!
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.
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.
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.

People are buying the Galaxy Tab?
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?
Never release another console for $599. How can posters here forget the real problem the PS3 had, especially at launch?
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.
Yet you use Android. Even open source can be lock-down software why do you think the carriers and OEMs love Android?
