Thought so. I didn't think you'd be friends with a sophomore, but then again, most people probably don't know that my only somewhat-real-friends are all sophomores, juniors, and seniors (and then bowei is my only actual friend at school).
Honestly, that is by far the worst article I've seen. Sure, I dislike Apple here because of my own personal tastes and preferences but I think it's obvious that they aren't going to be leaving for a long, long time. Most of the people out there love their products such as the iPhone, iPod, and iPad (almost everybody at the middle school is a Windows user though, so...iMac and Macbooks are a different story) and they'll get them no matter what, unless they're that horrible, but it's Apple and they'll try to blow everybody's minds with better quality and features so they never lose interest.
Arm A15 doesn't sound right...I thought the iPhone 5 used an ARM 6 based processor.
Most of them there are windows users but most would rather have a Mac. That's the difference
Haibur nyan. You have to remember. Apple's A series SoC is their own markings. I know it's REALLY confusing. Apple's own SoC combo unit is called the A6 but it is probably using an ARM Cortex A15. You see where the confusion starts now? Both start with A and have a low number. I believe it is ARM Cortex A15 based in the sense that they are using the basic design and making their own for superb performance. Taking combo of both A9, custom instructions and sectors and the improveed architecutre and other things of the A15. The A15 is quad core (not sure if dual core design) but it's made for server use, it uses up WAY too much energy than Apple is comfortable with. And thus as the article said, by using combo's of an A9, custom CPU design based off ARM v7 instructions and the new ARM A15 chips of which Apple has lisences for and to use both base ARM chips and their instruction sets. They have been able to allegidly(key word) get 2.1X performance faster than A5 in both processing and graphics, if this is true, then that would be a very fast phone that should be faster than any thing Android OS throws at it. Many Android phones by Q3 will be using Base ARM A15's quad cores but the problem is that their OS is too fragmented. Apple when they first debut'd dual core were able to give ANY AND EVERY app a performance boost as their OS and hardware are exactly matched, no need for custom multi core instructions form the developers. Android can't do that and some phones can't run some apps and vice versa. Most apps are not written for quad core use so even if you give me a quad core android device, there could really be little to care about FROM MOST of them. Samsung's and native Google (Motorolla Mobility) ones should have better quad core performance as Android platform has shown that flagships generally incorporate another set of custom instructions and more native builds to better support and get more performance.
