@Troll where did u get the 25% bro? That's a serious question too, not being a smart ass. Was there like an efficiency test, or something.

Apple will b fine, iOS will b fine, and the next iPhone will b fine but thanx for predicting the future. I'm sure apple will consider your psychic ability, and hire u to predict all things for them.

Iphone is fine just because of samsung made chips inside.......

Apple is in a wrong country. They should have been in CHINA as their style of functioning is typical of a Communist setup ... there are reports that SAmsung is wanting more money for it's chips a indirect way of telling Apple to FCUK off.

looking bad for apple to replace Samsung as chipmaker but it could be worse for samsung as it would say goodbye to those millions of dollars made by ios devices that uses it's chips. iPhone 4s sales alone is more than all galaxy 1,2, galaxy tabs combined

That's true. It's more going on than we the consumers know. These massive companies know what they're doing better than we do, if apples leaving Sammy then they have a reason, and a business plan. Personally I could care less, just keep cranking out the tech.

Apple will go Atom powered in two years
the 14nm parts will bring the most powerful least power hungry chip on the market
going directly to the medal they will be way faster than any ARM-emulated android phone similar to the Xolo X900
AND since Atom is x86 they can port a true Mac kernel to a iPad/iPhone/iPod
After that NOBODY comes even close!
Too bad M$ went for ARM instead of Intel Atom!!!
