From Daring Fireball:   Agam Shah, reporting for IDG: “The comments made by Anand Chandrasekher, Qualcomm CMO, about 64-bit computing were inaccurate,” said a Qualcomm spokesperson in an email. “The mobile hardware and software ecosystem is already moving in the direction of 64-bit; and, the evolution to 64-bit brings desktop class capabilities and user experiences to mobile, as well as enabling mobile processors and software to run new classes of computing...
  I downloaded Open Door and have purchased the 30-day ad-free in-app purchase. I'm not sure how much use I'll get from this app, but at the least I'll give it some support, however little that may be.
 I don't have a problem with Apple pulling the app because it is against the law in a particular country. If I open a bricks and mortar store in Xizhimen in Beijing and sell illegal goods (say, "Tank Man" t-shirts?) I expect I'll get shut down pretty quickly. However, I do agree with your point about there needing to be a more globalised iTunes store (apps, music, whatever).

Even my other friend the Windows zealot, loves his Windows phone...
 Haha, no, we've moved to staggering our upgrades. I'll hang onto my 4S for one more year, whilst she'll upgrade from her 4 now which is on it's last legs (we got it a couple of months before the 4S was released, couldn't wait). Also, she's not as fastidious with her devices as I am, I wouldn't want her banged up cast-off!  (Not that I said that, mind you!)
