Since the Apple SOC is custom, aside from the licensed parts, samsung better be careful on what they copy. Proving samsung's potential SOC theft might be easier to prove then what Apple has had to deal with in the past.
I'm sure Apple has some people thinking about health care solutions. I'm not cool with having another potential Schmidt. No reason for Apple to put themselves in that position. Let Art go and instead have Apple also invest in Calico. Additionally if Art is serious about this he should focus on his new CEO job.
I am surprised that no one seems to have mentioned that the current ARM 64 bit design has a lot of architecture/instructions to support backwards compatibility. Because Apple controls the hardware and the OS they "could" streamline pieces to make their SOC faster and better when used in an Apple product then anything running Android on generic ARM chips. I believe Apple probably has done this.
When I tried VMWare a year ago it was very buggy compared to Parallels so I didn't switch. Since then I've had to use Parallels phone support once and they were able to work with me right away and resolve the issue I was having. The Parallels updates seem to keep making the application better. I'll stick with Parallels even though I think the upgrade price is a little high.
