This kind of sounds like Google with regards to patents.   Anyone remember their stance on patents that they consider a "de facto standard"? Basically if I invent something, and it becomes popular, then the patents should be made SEP's even if I, as the owner, don't want to declare them as part of a standard.
So you can't see the difference between ASKING for BBM to come to other platforms and a company being FORCED to bring it to that platform?Am I even surprised you'd make such a comment?
Awesome. I held off on 8 because 7 was working fine for me. To get 10 for free is fantastic.
 From the article you linked: "Although none of the major chip analysts have actual numbers, due to the difficulty of tracking so many phones on the market, all you have to do is look at the list of phones in the Wikipedia entry for Snapdragon, Qualcomm's brand of ARM-based processors, to see how ubiquitous Qualcomm is." You have sources with actual concrete numbers? Or something newer (that article is 18 months old).  Edited: Here's a link showing Mediatek alone shipped...
 I don't buy that 80% figure. If you look at the gazillion sub $100 Android devices being sold, I never see a Qualcomm processor inside. It'a always something like Mediatek. I'd say Qualcomm has almost 100% of high-end Android devices.
  There's an ever better way to look at Geekbench. If someone posts a single test of a device (often seen in forums) there will be a little box on the top right of the page. Clicking this brings up a graphic with points to plot up to 2,000 of the same device and their scores. If you look at the Note 4 the scores are all over the place. If you look at any Apple device, all the results fit into a little tiny bar with all the dots clustered around it. It's hilarious how...
You can always spot the idiots posting. One is when they post an Antutu benchmark, the laughing stock of the benchmark world. Then you go to Anand and find the iPhone 5S from a year ago beats the Note 4 in 6 out of 9 CPU benchmarks. Utterly pathetic for Ssmsungs latest & greatest. The other way to spot an idiot is when they bring up shipping estimated from IDC.
 You need to create posts people will actually want to read - not your usual blocked garbage.
Every single thing you do. If all your Apps support 64bit then it improves overall performance as iOS doesn't need to load libraries for both (when you have both a 32bit AND 64bit App running). You can run a system monitor App and see which Apps are 32bit and which are 64bit under the list of processes. It's less efficient to run a mix of both on a system.64bit will realistically only benefit a small number of Apps. You don't need 64bit performance for e-mail, Facebook or...
The A8 also has things like image processing (for the camera) and H.265 hardware coding built into the silicon. There could be other items we're not aware of. Either way, the A8 is damn impressive.
