Wow. Nothing like losing a few billion dollars in revenue and having them go straight into the pockets of a major competitor. So not only will Samsung revenues go down due to iPhone 6/6+ stealing sales from the Note 4/Galaxy S5, but they're going to decrease over the A8 processor. I predict the next two earnings calls are going to look pretty bad for Samsung.
Yet your 3GS still had one hardware feature that Android devices still don't have.
Funny. Just the other day I started noticing Samsung Galaxy ads on bus stops here in Vancouver with their ad telling you how easy it is to go from iOS to Android and how you can quickly transfer contacts, mail and pictures. Of course, they don't say anything about how to handle the $shitty app selection.Which program is this? I want to try it with my Andriod devices.
Yes yes yes Yes YES YES YESSSS. (in my best Beavis/Butthead voice).
 I can't use my Visa card at terminals/merchants that only accept Mastercard. How dare Mastercard make a system that only accepts their own cards and not my Visa.
Lame. Samsung Galaxy S3 had 9 million pre-orders. It then went on to sell 10 million in 55 days. Sooooooooo they sold 9 million right away, but it took another 55 days to get the next 1 million?
The haters are not going to be happy tomorrow when Apple announces the sales figures. I can hear it already: "Those were sales of the 5C, 5S and 6 combined. Most people bought the older iPhone 5C because it was free and the 5S because it was on sale. The 6 didn't sell." So any predictions? I'm going with 12 million, a significant jump from last years 9 million.
I didn't pre order this year as I actually want to try them both in my hands first, since they are a considerable departure from past iPhones. At work it seems an even split between the two sizes. However, several people are going to pick up the 5S at a lower price. Makes sense as the 5S is still a great phone. Bottom line is that Apple now has devices at multiple size points to cater to everyone. They are going straight at the Android venders who have been "left alone"...
I thought everyone knew what ¡ means. Otherwise I would have used /s.
Now it's becoming clear why the A8 has twice the transistors. First they announce improved image signal processing for the camera. Now we see it has H.265 encoding/decoding. I'm betting these two features sucked up a good chunk of those extra transistors. Add in an extra GPU core and storage for the secure enclave and that's probably where that extra billion transistors went. BTW, when is iOS going to support the royalty free and vastly superior VP9¡
