I don't think Apple need Quad Core Processor to keep up with Android. And i don't think Apple care about what spec Android phones have to compete aside from lawsuit. iOS is optimize for only one phone with updates for previous iPhone version. They create great software experience which is now a serious business platform.
Perhaps next year we'll see Quad Core iPhone.

All of this Apple vs. Android talk is useless. Fanboys need to calm down and just sit back in aw of all the advancements that are being made to mobile phones.

I have an iPhone 4S and rarely use my Siri. Apple however has done an amazing job marketing it as a must have feature. Do I really need to ask it what the weather is going to be like today only for it to pull up the same weather app I have on the home screen and deduce that it will be cold out? Nope. It's faster for me to open up the app myself and see.

+1 for Mass88, I wonder what android users do when there's no new article about Apple to bash on.
