Anyways. Apple isn't behind. I WISH my Gnex had the SGX543MP2. It lags on it's own live wallpapers right now mad.gif

People will flock to it to have the latest and greatest new Apple gadget.
Do you honestly think Apple could not have done that with their phones. Also do you think they can't add a quad core or hdmi or usb or anything else that Android phones and tablets already have? Hell look how they "tried" to take Siri out of the older model phones and said it would not work. You had to buy the newest Iphone to get it (kinda like Android manufacturers are saying Ice Cream wont work on their older devises).
They choose not too so they can create the next "i(insert name and number)" and keep making millions or more off of it.
Until people stop rushing out and buying the stuff they will continue to do this. Like Field Of Dreams "If you build it...they will come."

This guy has got it. And this is why I personally don't like Apple. But dang if they don't have the best marketing team on the planet!! They could OBVIOUSLY add in simple technologies but they don't because they know without it, it will still be the best selling tablet/phone/mp3 on the market. It's good business but they rely on the ignorant to buy 95% of their products. Are there techies that love Apple, sure(although I would be willing to bet there are a lot more that don't)! But the VAST majority of Apple users (and Android users, and WP7 users for that matter) are completely clueless when it comes to the fact that everyone seems to be moving to quad core or 4g and Apple has deliberately left it off so that they can show us a commercial next year with some Indie song playing and 4 or 5 hippies dancing around using some crazy app that no one asked for. But this year it has Flash player!! You know, that feature that we should've had 3 editions ago!

You've got it very wrong about Siri mate, let me explain:

They never took Siri out of the older iPhones, it was a free app owned by a company which Apple later acquired and later removed from the App Store after a year and a half when the 4S was introduced. However, the Siri on the App Store, and the Siri that comes with the 4S are two very different things: the former was dumbed down to run on even the 3G, and it lacked both the capabilities and integration with iOS that Siri on the 4S comes with.

Also they don't add one or two features and call it a new version -- the 3GS, 4, and 4S have all been significant updates over the previous model, with the most significant being the 4S. It's the same story with the iPad too.

Oh, and it's not so simple to just add a quad-core, there's a lot or factors and it isn't necessarily the best choice -- e.g, I'd much rather a dual-core Cortex A15 than a quad-core Cortex A9. That aside, Apple isn't withholding an HDMI or USB port to later introduce on a new model as "new features", they're just not adding them period.

Or, you know, I could just be referring to myself and the person I'm replying to, or to the Apple or tech community in whole. That's kind of obvious though...

Is someone ignorant for buying a product without features they don't need? I think not.

Apple's not adding a USB port because there's no use for one on iOS, and plus, it subtracts from the aesthetics -- as does an HDMI port. You can't write to or read from a USB drive on iOS, so having a dedicated port for USB would be pretty ridiculous.

That aside, they've not intentionally left out a quad-core processor and 4G connectivity. We're only just seeing the shift into quad-core processors now, and Apple may not want to make a quad-core Cortex A9. That aside, it may not be the best choice either. They may opt for a dual-core Cortex A9 at 28nm, or a dual-core Cortex A15 which would be better than a quad-core Cortex A9.

But they really can't. It's not fanboyism or OCN that comes up with the outrageous businesses practices......

The gpu in the gnex is the second best mobile gpu you can get. I think your holding it wrong. Buy an iphone and let me know how well live wallpapers run on it. Oh wait.....

You gotta remember man, your talking about one of the wealthiest companys in the world. They have enough money to put an i7 in the next iphone if they want. If apple was as into innovation as they used to be, it would of been done and we'd all be enjoying the benefits of quad core mobile gaming and productivity.

Yet they still have a small team -- remember they only release one new model of each product a year unlike other companies which release three or more different models per year.

Also they may not think a quad-core A9 is the way to go for the iPad, they may be waiting either for a dual-core A15 or a quad-core A15.

Right when I saw "Dual Core" I was like YEAHHHHH BUDDY!!!!!! This might finally be the fall of the iPad. Other companies have already had quad core for a while now in their tablets and Apple is still back in the dual core era. Maybe some people will realize this and change their purchase decision. biggrin.gif
