lilgto64 mentioned a paging file. This to me seems the most logical. Neither iOS or Android use a paging file which is why you run into memory limits (and why Apps get suspended and closed when memory is low). Paging files back in the days of hard disk drives sucked because of the speed compared to memory. Running Windows on a system with low memory was horribly slow. I'm sure we all remember the light for your hard drive blinking madly as Windows was constantly paging...
 First off, where is it written that because you make an album that you're ENTITLED to make your mortgage payment (or even make a living)? I'll expand on this below...  Nowhere in my post did I say I don't buy new music. I did say: "I also have a few radio stations/shows I listen to because they align with my tastes." This is how I discover new music. By listening to shows that I like and the stuff they decide to play.  Way to miss the point. There's a reason people like...
 If a tree falls in the forest, does anybody hear? If we take your suggestion to its final conclusion it would result in countless websites for bands/musicians. How in the hell is someone going to get people to come to their site and purchase their music over the gazillion other sites out there? Most of those websites would be the same as the tree in the forest, lost among countless others and irrelevant. To further complicate matters, who wants to buy music individually...
OK, so they filed a complaint. What do they actually want? Surely they have something in mind?
The only reason the processor is covered up is out of respect for Qualcomm. If they knew anything about what it was, their heads would explode. They still haven't fully recovered from the "kick to the balls" 64bit A7 from last year.
Saw Zuckerberg do this yesterday and he called out Bill Gates. Of all the people doing this I think Gates or Cook would be the most interesting.
I try to block trolls like DroidFTW, but if you people keep quoting him then I'm forced to see his crap over and over. Best to just ignore him in the first place and spare everyone else at the same time.     Now on to Samsung's amazing battery saving technology. Forget about making a more efficient processor that can idle as much as possible after doing any work. Forget about making new LCD technology that uses less power. Let's just shut everything off. Lame.
 What a crock of shit. There are Apps that take advantage of 64bit and I've been using them for some time. While it's true most Apps don't need (or take advantage) of the A7, that doesn't mean that none of them do or that it's marketing. Most people don't utilize a fraction of the processing power in their PC - doesn't mean it's marketing to actually have that power available. There is no "trickle down effect" for Apple. They control everything (hardware, OS and App...
 Bingo. Who cares how many instructions it can perform in parallel? Where is the compiler coming from to take advantage of it? Is Google going to make changes to the Android SDK to take advantage if this? Is Nvidia going to develop an add-in compiler tool to work with Android? And when we have Exynos and Snapdragon 64bit processors, what then? If they all have different widths (very likely) and different methods of dispatching instructions (very likely) than what happens...
Here's the big problem for Nvidia:   They built a powerful processor that isn't suitable for phones (tablets only due to power consumption). Apple (1st) and Samsung (2nd) have the high-end tablet market locked down. That leaves a very small market of potential customers that could actually use this processor.   Nvidia should have been thinking of who they could sell a processor to instead of making a "beat" (we'll have to wait and see on this one) that has a very...
