As pointed out in the comments on the Cisco blog post by a Cisco PR rep, if you use the source code (as opposed to the binary) you are responsible for any resulting licensing fees. Cisco is only covering the fees for those who use the binary.
77TB is almost a fuckton of data. (At least metric, where 10TB is a shitload, and 10 shitloads = fuckton)
i believe you mean metric fuck tonne.

Given that the S4 has twice the cores of the iPhone5, this seems reasonable, if not a bit disappointing. I'd be curious to see some real-world benchmarks to see how actual apps fare, as they typically won't be making use of all 4 cores. For instance, while the S3 international flavor scores higher than the iPhone5 on this chart, there were many real world tests that the iPhone5 easily won.
I'll be anxious to see real world tests and see how well the S4 is making use of all of the available cores.
It's interesting you mention Boujou - the same company (2d3) announced basically this software, with some mighty impressive demo videos, at SIGGRAPH about 11 years ago.
As far as I know, though, it never saw the light of day.

While some people are thrilled with that, I'm not in that camp.
It seems to be getting Slashdotted, the site isn't consistently responding for me. Oh, and while paging through the finger results on my first connect I got this (for realsies):
"operator: Slashdotted..367 users, holy shit"
Well, it's hard to define "average user", but I will say that at work we have several popular, commercial web apps that we use for various internal things (bug tracking, timesheets, etc.) that are staggeringly faster on Chrome 9 and especially 10 than on FF3 or Safari 4 or IE < 9 (I can't speak for 9). So much so that it's immediately obvious to your average non-technical person that has to interact with these apps. So much so that these average non-technical people are jumping ship to Chrome after trying it out just once because they're so impressed with how much faster things are.
Not that the features and plugins you're talking about aren't super nice to have, but to answer your question: from my experience, yes, the average user notices.
