 The Intel PAE features enable 32 bit CPU to address more than 4GB of physical ram.  While most Linux distribution and every Intel version of OSX support this feature, Microsoft artificially limit the functionality to high-end Windows Server Datacenter licence only. 
 Correction: True you need to optimize your software to get most benefits of a new platform, also true most softwares gain some benefits without being optimize for a new platform. 
You got great imagination, Apple didn't sold all participation in ARM Holdings and they didn't sold at loss: http://news.cnet.com/Short-Take-Apple-sells-ARM-shares/2110-1001_3-221149.html Apple started to build the internal team for designing a custom ARM back in 2008 with the acquisition of P.A. Semi, Intrinsity team helped for the design of the A4 and then being acquired by Apple before sending the A4 design to production.  Samsung as not be implicated into the A4...
Yet another version  
 With all you said, If Microsoft was so confident into their own product they should made ads about it instead of making ads about competition product. Beside right now WP8 doesn't meet of beat anything.
Someone at Microsoft marketing dept should realize making ads talking about your competition is more damaging.  Beside Microsoft should work harder on showing how their stuff works instead of show off gimmicky accessories.  
 Thats a nice thought, while I agree encryption is an important aspect for high-end processing, I am not sure Apple's thinking behind rushing 64bit mobiles to market as being affected by this since nearly all mobile SoC got 128bit SIMDs more fits for encrypting-decrypting data streams than using the CPU ALU.  Just like the Athlon64, G5 or Core2Duo, even with unoptimized softwares for 64 bit platform, upgrading to 64bit hardware gives an overall oomph and somewhat a...
 Tell that to Seymour Cray,  I agree going to 64 bit will no automatically double the performance of every task but many task can get benefit from it and since iOS got the richest sets of multimedia and signal processing oriented APIs, current apps will gain some benefit from the 64bit iOS 7 thru API call.  Those are things Apple has done many times in his history; adding functionality and optimization thru API upgrades.  Like the cut and paste feature in example,  once...
 Do you know if the GUI is part of the binary on Android apps?
 One thing I don't know about the Android APK stuff, does every build shares the assets, like gui stuff or they are duplicated for every build included in the APK?  Because on OSX, the UI part and assets are store outside of the binary and being share between all architecture include within the binary.  So adding more target arch to a fat binary on OSX doesn't add much to the size of the apps.
