Right, but it does increase. How soon will that RAM that only powers what’s in use be ready, anyway?
Then what you stated is absolutely meaningless and no less true than what jungmark stated in the first place, meaning there was no reason to argue it or try to diminish Apple by pointing anything out.
I just assumed you had meaning to your post.
It must also be meaningless that all current Macs are X86 because “not all Macs have ever been X86.“
Either that or, as I’ve already said, the message is utterly different and your post was completely pointless.
Samsung does a great job of manufacturing! They're a great company! Apple needs them right now.
Samsung's problem is that they can manufacture beyond Android's abilities. And Google can't simply increase Android's sophistication, due to extreme market fragmentation. Android has to work on legacy phones, and any new version of Android won't be upgraded by a majority of Android users worldwide.
This is a problem for Samsung. Their solution is going to be making their own cutting edge OS copying iOS7. Samsung will come out with their own version of iOS7, innovating no doubt in many ways.
Google will come out with its own OS as well. Chrome will run on tablets, phones, watches, googles, etc.
And Amazon will continue to refine its forked Android until it comes Android's own proprietary system.
We're not going to repeat Windows 98 here. Every company wants badly to be Apple. Why? Easy! Apple is making all the money in the sector lol!
But do you know that Android accounts for 75 percent market share? Please explain how Apple is making all the money?
You’re embarrassing yourself. Please stop.
Right, because the very idea is completely idiotic and said computers are not used for touch purposes after the initial, “Hey, dude; look at this.”
Oh! That explains why the software is so effing WORTHLESS as a real operating system! Thanks for the clarification.
Yes, let’s all spend the same amount of money and get a POS computer that will work for two years with POS software that is the industry standard in fertilizer and control it with a POS gimmick for which said software isn’t even designed. THAT’S a good idea.
And I’d love to know how it’s Apple’s fault that Wacom’s hardware “doesn’t” work with theirs.
I will. I always enjoy a laugh.
I don’t know, but he’s on first.
Sure it will. Just like how the Android Store makes developers more money than… oh, wait.
There you go again. This is somehow Apple’s fault that third parties refuse to make something compatible?

Actually it will be only two years. Think of it like this:
2013: One 64bit iPhone (5S) and two 32 bit iPhones (5C and 4S) are being sold.
2014: One new 64 bit iPhone 6, one older 64 bit iPhone 5S and one 32 bit low-end iPhone (5C) being sold.
2015: One new 64 bit iPhone 6S, one older 64 bit iPhone 6 and one "low-end" 64 bit iPhone 5S being sold.
So by 2015 Apple will only be selling 64 bit devices. Sure there will be some really old 32 bit iPhones around, but they would be ideal upgrade candidates for the 6S in 2015. By Christmas 2015 the vast majority of iOS devices will all be 64 bit.
You're missing a key point. Doubling the RAM basically doubles the power consumption because of how DRAM works (requires constant power to refresh). FLASH storage doesn't work like that - 64GB of FLASH doesn't require twice the power of 32GB FLASH.
The real problem (and why so many people keep yapping their traps about 4GB of RAM) is that developers have gotten lazy over the years. When I started coding it was on a Z80 with 64KB RAM. Programmers had to be very efficient when they coded to make things work on systems with severe constraints on RAM.
Nowadays PC's have ridiculous amounts of RAM and nobody bothers to optimize their code for size. The only industry where code optimization is still important (and widely practiced) is embedded systems with microcontrollers (which still have limited storage). Apple is treating their iDevices and iOS like an engineer working on an embedded system would - making something work on a system with limited resources. Android is going the PC route - assuming the device will have loads of RAM and processor power and code accordingly (lazy).
Consumers are used to bloated programs from years of using them on PC's. Last time I downloaded a printer driver for Win 7 it came in at 130MB. Seriously? 130MB for a f^&king printer driver? So it's difficult for many people to grasp the concept of a useful program or OS taking up a fraction of the space of something like Windows.
Years ago QNX (yes, QNX that Blackberry bought) had a demo disk to show off how efficient their OS was. It came on a 1.44MB floppy disk. Put the floppy into your PC, let it boot up and soon you had a GUI OS running on your PC. Then you could launch the web browser and start viewing web pages. You could even run Java apps in the browser. It only required a PC with 8MB of RAM to run on.
I think a lot of the "4GB idiots" should learn their computer history before spouting off and making themselves look foolish.
You may be correct, I'm not an expert in mobile battery life issues. I was basing my comments on things I have read written by people who are more knowledgable than me. I find it difficult to believe that Apple would scrimp on RAM due to price concerns when they obviously have put a lot of expensive embellishments into their latest smartphones.
Sinofsky then introduced a detailed explanation authored by Bill Karagounis, the group program manager of Microsoft's Performance team, to detail exactly why using less RAM is so critically important.
Karagounis points out that "minimizing memory usage on low-power platforms can prolong battery life," noting that "In any PC, RAM is constantly consuming power. If an OS uses a lot of memory, it can force device manufacturers to include more physical RAM. The more RAM you have on board, the more power it uses, the less battery life you get.
Nor does it need to. That's the benefit of their VM-based approach - it isolates app developers from the underlying hardware, so OEMs can choose the best processor for a particular device. Dalvik already runs on 32-bit ARM, x86, and MIPS. While some future devices will benefit from 64-bit CPUs, there's no need for every device to be 64-bit.
What? Could you actually respond to my point rather than just make nonsensical posts?
What? Could you actually respond to my point rather than just make nonsensical posts?
Responded directly. Your inability to comprehend that is telling.
Nope. Not ‘nothing’, at least.
Absolutely nothing you've said is actually true...
In case you missed it in your blind fury, I'll post this again:
“[While Apple touted 64-bit support in the new iPhone,] that’s done in Linux, has been done for a long time. The Android ecosystem just picks that up by default, they don’t have to go through any special development process to do that.”
– Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin
I really didn't have to prove anything to you at all, I can hope and wish that people would read, research and listen. That's the only reason I joined this thread. The "in a bubble" circle-jerk and misinformation were clearly getting out of control and I felt the need to do something about it. Unfortunately, some people want to stick their fingers in their ears and say, "La, la, la, la..."
This I actually agree with if it's correct; however, I still believe that it will be the next generation of iPhone that will fully reap the rewards of 64-bit and not this one. Again, only time will tell. Nobody has to take anything I write here seriously at all. :-)
Why not take that line of thinking to its ultimate conclusion and give the phone zero RAM. That way you'll never need to charge the battery. In fact you won't even need a battery.
Because clearly it needs to be a balance of enough RAM to do what is needed coupled with enough battery to last 8-10 hours and keep the thinness of the device as optimal as possible. Same goes for the screen size. Larger screen uses more battery as well. Everything in moderation, including the price.
I can't recall ever seeing an alert on my iPhone "Out of Memory". And... never once has my iPhone crashed or become unresponsive.
Don’t even need a phone, then, either. Heck, do away with civilization. Fire bad! Burn Ogg!
If they want to be sued into bankruptcy, sure.
It benefits Samsung more than Apple because the former gets to keep stealing the latter’s designs this way.
