While I sympathise with the activists' point of view, it's not wise for a guest to take sides in a domestic dispute.    Mention of Samsung makes me shudder. Brings back an old Aussie commination:   'May your chooks turn into emus, And peck your dunny down. Peck your dunny down. Really go to town. I hope your chooks turn into emus. Yes, I do, I really do. And when they've pecked your dunny down, I hope they peck on you.'
Reading and learning from some surprisingly informed and non-stupid disputes here about the merits of 64-bit, etc. That said, I'll stick with my earlier assessment that the A7 renders all other mobile chips obsolete (which is why there's so much smirking and gurning coming from non-Apple side; it's all they have!). As quoted by Gruber from a long technical article by Mike Ash ( http://www.mikeash.com/pyblog/friday-qa-2013-09-27-arm64-and-you.html ): >Adding it all...
Ballmer's bonus is just a 'rounding error'; he's worth over $18 billion! It's his pride that will be hurt.    He and Gates between them could probably buy a controlling interest back in MS … and fire the Board.   They all deserve each other and oblivion for foisting garbage Windows and garbage Office and over 1 MILLION viruses (Symantec) on an innocent public.
 Bollocks to that! it's not strange at all. The limiting parameter in phone cameras picture quality is sensor noise, and increasing the pixel density can make that worse. Simple experiment: take an indoor picture of a dark-coloured object with daytime ambient lighting on an SLR set to 3 MP; take the same picture with a phone (yes, even an iP 5S) set to 8 MP. The phone picture will look like brown muddy shit compared to the "low resolution" SLR pic. Apple is doing exactly...
Gimmick schmimmick, Apple has just rendered all other mobile chips obsolete.   That's why the non-Apple mob are so keen to poo poo the 64-bit break-through: their product is now a dead-end and they'll have to play copy copy catch up all over again. Only they'll be year or more behind (again).    BTW: are those Samedung chip data with or without the 20% fake speed boost?   ed. OK, the Figure caption says "Disabled by AnandTech etc." 
So if their cheating is confirmed by, say, consumer watch-dogs then the makers should fined for false advertising, no? These are very sad and desperate bastards indeed!
Having taken many thousands of photos on a Sony (/Minolta) alpha camera , I'm glad to hear that Sony is doing the sensors. They're still make quality stuff (compared to their Korean counterparts) and they need all the money they can get (after last year's $ 6B loss!)
> we would leverage it for iTunes Radio but the primary key to iTunes Radio was to create it custom for you. When you%u2019re talking premiering song, what we%u2019re doing iTunes Festival-wise, we knew iTunes Radio was a perfect place for that so it%u2019s perfect alignment
Only paid for Mobile Me once in 2008 (or was it 2009) and now it's finally expired: That's value for money!
The iPad mini weighs 310 g. So scaled up 25% linear (diagonal) that should come to between 480 g (mass α d^2) and 600 g (mass α d^3). Probably closer to the former (under 1 'pound' [aka ye ancient american unit]) since the mass is mainly determined by area: a sensor pane at the front and an Al-sheet the at back (assuming same thickness as the iPad mini for each).
