For the sense of what we are talking about the difference between strict virtualization and "virtualization" in general (which you labeled emulation, which is still a form of virtualization) is pedantic.   The fact is that todays processors or arrays of processors are vastly more powerful than the old PPC chips with which we emulated windows.   No one is talking about emulating windows on an existing AnX chip.   An array of such chips, however, is a different beast.
 A 32 or 64 core ARM would work very well in a desktop.   Power hungry apps are already parallelized, but even ones that aren't can run on their own core so you don't have to share your CPU with other apps, or with as many other apps.   On my desktop I have 12 apps currently marked as "running".  If they were each in their own core, plus the OS processes used a few cores, then your average desktop app itself would not have to be optimized for many cores in order to get a...
Just for the record I carry my iPhones 'naked' and have since the 5 came out. And I have no luxury handbag. Just my pants pocket (granted Vertx pants and their awesome experience online pocket)
 I am not sure why it couldn't.  PPC Macs ran virtualized Windows.   You probably wouldn't be playing games but you could virtualize the CPU and have 9 or so cores running it for decent performance I would guess.
 They don't need to make a CPU with equivalent performance to an intel chip.   For the same energy and thermal footprint, they can use many of their chips to replace a single intel chip.    A single quad core i7 looks to be around 80-85W depending on model (65/84/88 for the three listed on wikipedia).  I was not able to find power consumption on the A8X but found "tablet CPU power consumption" to be about 4-8W in estimates.  So lets use 8, and kick it up to 12W for an...
I think it would be quite cool to have a zillion ARM cores in a desktop or laptop.  Potentially a lot more power than a single quad core intel chip.   However, having made prototypes means nothing about future plans.   NeXT supposedly had a many-core PPC version running for a long time in the labs before there was any speculation at all of any tie-up with Apple.   And Apple supposedly had classic MacOS running in the lab on intel for years but never did anything...
   You do realize that when the Christian kings of Europe were behaving like this, that was the common form of behavior for all.  Whether Christian, Pagan, Muslim, or otherwise, a thousand years ago (plus or minus) wars, violence, etc. were common amongst most all societies, groups of people, etc.
3 of those credit unions are in Utah, 2 of them based in Utah. While I use them on a regular basis as shared branches, the credit union we use (which is on the list to join Apple Pay) is not yet hooked up. But pretty good for two regional Utah credit unions (Cyprus and Mountain America) to be in the list. Just need Digital Credit Union in Mass and Deseret First FCU here in Utah to get hooked up... (And Discover)
Even in the US, 100 years is not "old" in absolute time (European peoples have been in North America since the 1500s (Spanish)). But in terms or architecture, and past periods, even from 50 years ago there might be buildings worth saving if there was some sort of historical context for it.
I was lucky enough to be in Japan last year over New Years.  Unfortunately, my wife asked, when I told her I was going to the Apple Store in the middle of the night to try and be in line to buy a Fukubukuro and she asked, "Do we need anything that might be in it" and I had to say no, so I didn't go.   Been kicking myself ever since.   Maybe next New Years (2016).  It is great fun.   All stores, almost, have these "grab bags" and sometimes you can get some good deals.  But...
