What were you saying about talent? AutoTune and pre-written vocals vs someone who, at the very least, is average with 4 instruments, 3 of which are completely different from one another, yeah, they have a lot of talent compared to me.

That "Custom Built" A4 SoC is just a Cortex-A8 CPU core paired with a PowerVR SGX 535 graphics processor... In other words the two chips from the iPhone 3GS in one package, but clocked higher.

The R&D costs are minimal at worst, it's just two licensed chips (That Apple already use in the 3GS albeit at a lower clock), made by Samsung and clocked at 1Ghz.

Just like how AMD and Cyrix and IBM and countless others used to make 8086s, 186s, 286s, 386s and 486s...

It is, but at a higher clock, hence where the performance benefit is. (I also think Apple put more RAM in it to help with the higher resolution, but I can't be bothered fact checking it at the moment.)

Heh, I'm a Linux fanboy and even I can admit that only the stupid and the occasional unlucky bastard would get a Windows virus these days, hence why Apple targets that audience.

The fact of the matter is, the iPad is doing exactly what the iPhone did, moving an generally business only market (The iPhone did it with smartphones and the iPad is doing it with tablets) to consumer level use, and I'm willing to bet that just like in the smartphone market, Android will come and kick some butt and force Apple to put in features that should otherwise be standard, just like Copy + Paste, etc. (I'm hoping it's Flash support this time)

Lady Gaga is actually very talented, no one gives her credit since it's the cool thing to do apparently. She writes all of her songs. She used to write songs for other artists as well.

She was one of 20 students accepted through early decision at NYU's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts at the age of 17.

I absolute hate people who throw dirt on her because behind her glamor and outrageous outfits is someone more talented than 95% of the artists out there.


Here's a video of her before she became famous:

Man, don't get started, Brutuz here obviously has more talent and is going to be shooting past her in the ratings and winning awards left and right.
HE has talent because HE says so and he's just misunderstood and under appreciated.
He's just not into the glamor and the fame, that's for sellouts and people who use Auto-tune and stuff, and he's Brutuz, he's no sellout.

Yeah, I meant pop artists in general...Talent on the radio these days is few and far between, Muse is the only other band/songwriters (Off the top of my head) with any sort of actual talent.

Or maybe I don't play pop, and therefore am limited to being big underground or among a crowd of people at best? Maybe I'm not going risk having a good future career by basing my life around "If I keep playing, one day I'll get big"? Maybe I play because, gasp, I enjoy playing along to tracks I already like and don't really care about getting money from it?

And when did I even say misunderstood and under appreciated? Or even hint it?

Yes, I agree. I'd replace my mom's laptop (which she still doesn't know how to copy-paste on) with the iPad since all she does is write documents. It's a great starting point for someone to being using computers, but worthless as a whole. Again, I'll say, the Viliv X70 ftw in this price segment.
However, when people bring this up (and particularly state their own opinion, as is the case with the OP) on an overclocking forum, then it's only inevitable people with fight to the death.

Lovely story, but she doesn't really make music. She's merely a copypasta. All her songs are samples of other people's music, put on top of one another to a generic bass. As for the songs she wrote, most of them were for Britney Spears, so there goes her song writing cred.

and if she applied to tisch as an ED candidate that means she knew she wasn't even good enough for Berkeley. And since when did arts school make artists.

Only thing i will give her credit for is her style. But she's all style and no substance
