You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
The Los Angeles 2016 Organizing Committee signed a Memorandum of Understanding with FIDE VP Israel Gelfer on July 11, 2015 in Los Angeles. The prize fund is 2.5M Euros. The Match is proposed for October 2016. FIDE President did not sign and approve the MOU in mid-July when presented by Mr. Gelfer. The LA2016OC also proposed a Candidates Tournament in San Francisco.
The current bid - now on the table until September 1, 2015 - by LA2016OC to FIDE includes a prize fund of 5M USD, upwards of 21 games and an arts festival. The bid also proposed a Candidates Tournament in San Francisco Bay Area with a 1M USD prize fund.
Perhaps this is a lesson in the importance of diversity for the bottom-line.
Support from the SoC vendor is the first step in getting an update out the door, and you'll see many phones' support lifecycles cut short thanks to the likes of Texas Instruments and Nvidia. The Galaxy Nexus used a Texas Instruments OMAP 4460 SoC. TI quit the smartphone business in 2012, leaving Google's flagship without support for KitKat. The only device we've seen update to KitKat without support from the silicon vendor is Google Glass, which uses the same chip as the Galaxy Nexus. If the incredibly buggy performance of Google Glass post-KitKat update is any indication, though, that was an experiment that went very poorly.
The speculation is Google Glass will be switching to Intel for the next iteration. There's a reason why many of the mass market mobile device players such as Apple and Samsung have invested in their own ARM SoCs. There is in fact an uncanny correlation between mobile device companies selling hardware having catastrophic collapse of market share such as Nokia and Blackberry with failure to develop an ARM SoC for the 2010s and beyond.
What this country needs is a good five dollar plasma weapon.
