Whoever got lucky and was able to buy 5s at apple store today, please download geek bench 64 bit app and post the results to their site. It is still showing ipad 4 as a top result with no records of 5s:
Unfortunately, times when competitors were "not even visible in a rear view mirror" are long gone.5S is barely in top 3 for this benchmark:http://blog.gsmarena.com/the-first-benchmarks-scores-of-samsung-galaxy-note-3-are-in/Galaxy Note 3 is way ahead with 68 fps.Seems like Apple did not use the next gen PowerVR Rogue tech in this iteration?
Apple may have lost $1b by not keeping ARM.
But it have lost much more by not buying out all 3rd party multi-touch patents and ip before 2007 release of iPhone.
Without multi-touch Android would have been far from where it is now.
