How much energy would we waste getting it out of earth's orbit? (not to mention money and materials for the rocket) edit: from Nasa.gov: Today, it costs $10,000 to put a pound of payload in Earth orbit. edit: and from wiki it takes 973 gigajoules to launch a rocket to mars that weighs 10000kg. (which is 973 GW/seconds, I think): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spacecraft_propulsion#Effectiveness To put that into perspective, it would cost $10000 x 22000 lbs = 2.2 billion...
Good god man.  Good god!
 ... this is like, joke trolling, right?
Throw in a 1/2 hp impact drill while you're at it!
It says right in the article: to take advantage of in-camera crop modes. A 24 megapixel would not necessarily look better.  You are assuming it would have less noise (and you might be right).
I dunno.  He got the iPhone 6 more or less right....
Its not. But claiming that the old phone is most popular because it sold more units over several years compared to a new product, especially when that product is selling outstandingly, is mind-blowingly asinine, which is the original claim to which I'm referring. Edit: upon re-reading I think we are on the same side and I misread your retort to peter236.  Mea culpa
I thought its pretty clear the 6 numbers are record breaking?
That's a pretty specious argument. "Computers should never need to get faster, since older computers were used by 100% of people"
I'm not arguing with you.  But that chart means squat and does not improve your argument one iota.  In fact, it weakens it because its such a transparent rhetorical move. The best part about facts well-known is that you don't have to cite sources!
