No man. The thing is Android had a resolution independent UI while iOS did not at the time. That was a technological handicap Apple had so they had little choice but to solve it that way.
Symbian was great when it came out. 32-bit OS with memory protection and multitasking. The APIs are horrible and I hear its a mess to program for but at the time it was probably the best cellphone OS. It is really dated now.
The problem was more than computers. The materials weren't up to snuff. The airframe deformed after just one flight.
It was painfully obvious they only acquired Nokia because of the patents. The rest be it R&D or especially manufacturing operations is to be disposed of.
From my experience you need less Linux sysadmins to begin with. Its easier to do remote admin. So the TCO numbers Microsoft claims are usually bullshit.
Security fixes or speed. Pick one.
RBP is the 64-bit version of the X86 BP register. It is used to point to the beginning of the stack frame. Are those 'variables' function arguments?
It is just fetching values directly behind the end of the stack frame.
The bug happens to manifest on version 4.9.0. How many Linux kernel versions have you know to be bugfree.
GCC is the most robust compiler around. Don't compare it with ICC which breaks compiling anything other than microbenchmarks.
Let me guess it doesn't support all the 4G frequencies modern phones do.
It does get slower with upgrades man. I have an iPhone 3GS and it is way slower after the upgrades than when I bought it. To the point I way forever for applications, even Apple's, to start, scrolling is jerky. Even the phone startup and shutdown are slower.
Sometimes I feel like the graphics driver is not optimized and the binaries have been compiled with the wrong processor flags and aren't being scheduled properly.
When the old firmware has security issues like the Apple SSL bug it is a bad idea not to update the firmware.
I do suspect they do not even bother compiling the binaries for the older architecture by switching a couple of compiler flags though. The performance difference is just too big.
They only started actually building something now. Before that it was paper studies in an office. That cost millions a year.
Yet in the end Japan lost the war because their industrial power was much inferior.
Guess where is that industrial power today.
The F-104 Starfighter was supposed to be a cheap Mach 2 fighter. It was precisely that. It was also designed in record time with nothing but drafting boards and sliderules. It was just accident prone. The F-35 has taken forever to develop, costs more than an F-22 per unit, is slower than the F-104 Starfighter from the 1950s. It uses less fuel and has more advanced weapons. That is about it.
You can downmod other people and ignore facts you want you little pseudoanonymous shit. It seems you prefer to keep to your idea of what happened instead of reading the link the other guy gave you which clearly shows the EGA version of The Secret of Monkey Island came before the VGA version but the reality is still the same. Here have a quote from Ron Gilbert himself:
2) I was playing the VGA version that was released after the original EGA version. The original original version used 16 colors and the inventory was text only.
