 Hey, Gene, maybe it's time to become the poster boy for ongoing Car rumors.Because it's important to have hobbies.
Good move.And maybe it's time to ice Gene Munster too.
 Exactly.Thanks for restating my point.  In too many words.
Lazy programming is lazy programming no matter how much RAM is available.Sure, ARC (Automatic Reference Counting) makes memory management far easier post-iOS 4.x.But efficient coding is always better.  Resource pigs run slow.  Resource hogs get slaughtered.
Everyone with a modest-to-deep understanding of iOS already realizes just how important it is to optimize the use of RAM on this platform.  To do anything other than good engineering, on any platform mobile or otherwise, is lazy and smacks of total ignorance. But yeah, thank you for your carefully considered insight, oh Grand Defender of Spec Monkeydom.
Really?  Important if you are attempting to do anything remotely like good engineering.  I'm telling you that RAM is a vital, precious resource on any mobile device for apps and for the OS and that there are many factors involved in designing the OS and apps to best use that RAM.  BTW, people have no clue about the lengths that good developers go to in order to provide world-class experiences.  Are those world-class experiences running on something else than iOS? Nope.
 I have two points: 1. Eisenhower is dead.2. The oil, tire, and automotive companies are alive and kicking and will fight to maintain the non-electric status quo.
 Not as boring as 2GB of RAM.Only spec-monkeys give a poop about that.
 Good points.  I'm too much of a "car guy," and I enjoy driving too much to just push a button and ride. Sometimes I drive for no reason other than to enjoy my cars.  Yes, I own two.And yes, I'll be getting a new car this year and look forward to tracking it at Laguna Seca, Sonoma, and Thunderhill (and hopefully Nurburgring.) A self-driving race car would kill any of that kind of fun. "Speed provides the one genuinely modern pleasure."- Aldous Huxley
 Me too. I'm a "car guy."  I never buy a (new) car that I don't obsess about, and keep my cars for a long, long time. But think of it this way.  There were thousands if not millions of people who used to love riding horses.  And they'd ride them to work, they'd use them to pull carriages, and almost all of that horse culture is now gone.  And many related jobs are also gone.  Blacksmiths, stagecoach drivers, carriage makers, saddle makers, stable boys, ad nauseam. Things...
