1) There are possible applications that can utilize dual-core. In this market, hardware leads software.

3) With more intensive parallable workloads, developers who are not multithreading are the ones that are short-sighted.
4) There is no such thing as a "dual-core applications". Software just creates threads and the OS manages the threads regardless of how many cores.
Not accurate. Kernel threads are common but user-level threading is also used and actually preferred sometimes.

I'm arguing semantics but there are n-core applications, otherwise known as core-aware applications. For mine, I detect how many cores/threads are available, I check whether they are real or just hyperthreads, and then I chop up my work appropriately across them all!

iPhone 4 users who switched to 4s basically paid several hundred dollars and a mobile phone contract for a software update/app.

But will it blend?

True, Apple's Thread Manager provides user-level threading?

User-level threading makes more sense on Apple devices with defined hardware than on Android's more diverse/fragmented market.

I think you'd have to be brain-dead to upgrade from iPhone 4 to 4s without being due for your contract "upgrade", but you would still get better performance, better camera, etc. with the 4s.

You're not solely buying a Siri app such as you imply.

You guys think this would be possible for the 3GS?

Watch every Apple iPhone 4s commercial and review. All they talk about is Siri.

Mark: Do you ever see Siri showing up in Cydia (or another jailbreak store) for non natively supported devices?

Steven: No, I could not be a part of that. I have no doubts that others will package this up and distribute it quasi-illegally, or try and sell it to people. I am only interested in the technology and making it work; proving that it works and works well on the iPhone 4 and other devices.
I guess that may be a yes.

Took a while. For a moment i actually believed That it did require a dual core to process the "thinking" of Siri
