I graduated in 2010 and had absolutely no problems getting a job. In fact, I started a semester before I officially graduated. What really helped me is that I had been working with some form of programming since I was in middle school. In high school I really started to focus on it, so that by the time I got to college I was far ahead of most of the other students. I continued to do work outside of what was assigned while others did not.
I believe a formal education is important but you really need to go beyond that to get a good job. Otherwise you do end up doing IT work because you haven't set yourself apart. So many of the students I knew in college chose their major by how much money they were told they would make. They didn't put in any effort and did the bare minimum required. Others did well but never thought about things outside of textbook examples. Employers use a degree as a filter and look for projects and effort outside of school. For a student, this type of work not only shows some initiative but it can count as a form of experience.
You're forgetting the SGX554, clock for clock it's twice as powerful as the GeForce ULP.
THIS. In mobile, the GPU tends to be a bit more important than raw CPU power. This is because we are doing a lot of pixel pushing to render the final UI. On something like the Tegra 2, the UI could be slow because the fill-rate on Tegra 2 was comparatively low. A SOC with a better GPU but worse CPU would feel much smoother when navigating the UI. It is not often that you are maxing out a core, let alone four of them.
It's the most childish comic directed at a high school reading level I've ever found.
Pssh, I know. It hardly ever talks about Mondays.
Lots of people are PhDs or have excellent grades - this certainly applies to everyone in my team.
The question is how you select from within that group.
Certainly you wouldn't want them to "fit" into your existing team.
Yes, this is sarcasm, in case your detector is broken.
You could always print a new one.
