Heh... maybe they should do exactly that.
Looks like the legal team has an idea for how to spend that $40 billion in cash!

Thanks :-)

I just looked here:http://www.vgchartz.com/chartsindex.php and it seems to me that the Wii is well represented among the top selling games. Of course, many of those top-selling Wii games are from Nintendo, so maybe your point applies to 3rd party games.
All good points. I would just add that human "multi-tasking" isn't really multi-tasking, it's task switching. I cannot write an e-mail and read a blog at the same time. I physically cannot do it. A multi-core computer, on the other hand, can literally do two things at once, for example encode video while running a simulation. For the iPad/iPhone, the key is to enable human-style multitasking, which is to say rapid task switching. I need to be able to switch between my...
Why does the iPad need multiple cores? Why does it need an out-of-order processor? Those technologies might be "cool" but are they the right tradeoffs for the iPad?

If so, then the need for multiple cores is greatly reduced.
ah... fair point, and good distinction.
