    Those Smartphones are so powerful that the this power is completely wasted at the moment.
    I think eventually we will only have one device. You take it with you and when you're at home, or work, you just plug it into something, you have your keyboard and a screen and you work on this device only.

    I didn't even mention the iPhone. I was talking about the processor.


    BTW I use a 4 year old Android phone.

    And interesting to see that Apple has gotten into GPU development now as well...


    They've been using semi-custom GPUs for years now. Looks like they've finally gone full custom now.

    I don't need a cell pone with a laptop grade cpu.

    And btw, could we limit our discussion to computers?
    Cell phones may act as sort of a substitute, if your into eye strain a sore thumbs, but I'm not joining the fixated tiny screen zombies I everywhere in public these days. Its a little too much like crawling up your own asshole.
