Accessories How To Extend The Life Of Your Device Cables 6 COMMENTS Pretty good. Just imagine the multitasking that will happen when the Blue update arrives. Wow. :-o Interesting battery-saving secret behind RT, only have a few apps available on the RT app store, thereby effectively limiting the amount of background processes users may run. Oddly, I cannot find the patent for that approach anywhere. At least Windows RT doesn’t need power hungry multi-core processors unlike “your whatever stupid OS there,” which needs 8 core processors obviously to successfully swipe from right to left and left to right. ;-). May be they will patent that. While Microsoft-running devices may not need such bleeding-edge modern hardware to swipe from right to left, one might argue the devices could use better hardware, for example adequate pixel density consumers are growing increasingly accustomed to, in order to compete (especially at excessively high prices), and not be things whose press tends to look like this: http://www.businessinsider.com/top-microsoft-writer-microsofts-windows-rt-experiment-is-a-failure-2013-3 http://blogs.computerworld.com/tablets/21900/microsoft-should-kill-failing-windows-rt-and-focus-instead-full-windows-tablets-says-idc-report http://redmondmag.com/articles/2013/03/08/microsoft-cuts-oem-costs-on-windows-8.aspx http://www.eweek.com/mobile/is-microsofts-surface-doomed-like-zune/ And so forth. Hardware-envelope-pushing complacency is neither a virtue nor a strategy that appears to be working for Microsoft. so you are not denying Android needs more core processors just to handle some simple UI Gestures. I don’t see anything in your message other than your usual Microsoft hatred :-) Cool. Comments are closed.
