So riddle me this, Microsoft manages to get Haswell into this POS-2, yet the rMBP STILL doesn't have it yet. 
 Samsung doesn't design processors. They directly license the Cortex IP design from ARM itself and fab them. (http://www.arm.com/products/processors/licensees.php)All this processor copy fodder of Apple, who doesn't license from ARM and self designs, is good forum fun but largely a circle****. Samsung signed on to the 64bit A57 design in October of last year(http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2012/10/arm-goes-64-bit-with-new-cortex-a53-and-cortex-a57-designs/),...
No issues with iOS7 on my iPhone 5. Can't say the same for my otherwise reliable iPad 2, which now runs and lags like some cheap Android phone. C'est la vie. 
Clearly anyone can say 400x this, 250% that with fancy charts but it's all relative until there's numbers behind it explaining what that's based on. My favorite was the cumulative iPhone sales chart...not a single number anywhere on it outside of the year on the bottom.  This is definitely a biggie.  Clearly the best looking / exciting improvement IMO.  These are largely meh. This could be the big breakthrough in scanning tech, but it's not exactly like everyone's...
 No doubt, and like the desktop world 64 bit will be the future. But there's still inherent differences in the move that made 64bit critical in the CISC/Intel x86 world that mean less in the RISC/ARM world. IMO it would have more scalability potential to the iPad going forward and the on/off-rumored A-Series powered Macbook Airs than the iPhone.
If the phone has less than 4GB RAM (probably) the 64bit is largely useless, especially for the average consumer. A nice surprise though. Outpacing the ARMv8's to the market. 
  Zero $ apparently.   "This is not a money-changing-hands kind of deal," John Lagerling, director of Android global partnerships, told the BBC. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-23926938
  Indeed correct. There's isn't a single insider investor note out today about the Samsung ban relating to Apple, there was 1 in relation to Samsung's stock. It's all about the WSJ alleged announcement date. Yes everyone expected a new iPhone, WHEN is important for investors. Pure junk piece here. 
  Actually it is an LED backlit IPS LCD panel with Gorilla Glass (says so right on Google's page)  So technically yes, it is the same screen tech as in Apple products. It is not Pentile or OLED crap.
    Huh? Stock is up. : After Hours: 439.60 +20.61 (4.92%)   iPad number and Q4 revenue outlook looks a little light, but all in all good news everywhere else.
