Qualcomm back tracks! Apple is correct! “The comments made by Anand Chandrasekher, Qualcomm CMO, about 64-bit computing were inaccurate,” said a Qualcomm spokesperson in an email. “The mobile hardware and software ecosystem is already moving in the direction of 64-bit; and, the evolution to 64-bit brings desktop class capabilities and user experiences to mobile, as well as enabling mobile processors and software to run new classes of computing devices.”

Apple is known for that, cannot believe they are making all that money as leechers. That´s why the are all going to dia one by one, just like Thief Job.

And you are known for offending someone who has that name and thinking the right to punish someone who changed technology and feels like he is their today because apple still improved the iPhone, they still increase CPU and graphics along with speed and you are talking shit like a sheep as fck! That's why people will lose interest in that shit of your like anyone's one by one compared to market share, shame you can't see the fact apple is still the top market share and global brand! Keep living in nutshells or run back to your herds, your samsheeps are calling!

Well they do say 'forward thinking', so there looking at it more like a step in the right direction. sooner or later this type of hardware will be utilized.

I heard the exact same things for the entire 64bit Windows architecture. Arrogant, smug, non engineers working in marketing... talking like the actually "build" something. Until those "geniuses" realize that Google Chrome is not 64bit while Java already is... until they realize that a 64bit native browser will handle memory usage much better cos these days even grandma is doing 30 plus tabs. But sure, go ahead, join the army of moro*$ that went on for 15 years droning about storage sizes with sentences like: "Woah! BLAHBLAH GB: you'll neeeeeever fill that up! It's ridiculous for you to buy that!!!"

Faking benchmark scores and cheating those numbers for press releases is a "marketing gimmick" too. Trying to pass off performance numbers that arnt real world.....

So it's only a Gimmick until Qualcomm decides to put one out. Then it's advantageous because of "engineering, chip design and OSes standpoints". But until Qualcomm puts out a 64 bit processor it's a gimmick? Whatever

Told you so...... Not a surprise as major parts of apple is made in china

"If you don't want an iPhone 5s, Don't buy it!" As an updated version of the song would go. Upgrading from a 5 to a 5s is nice but not nice enough. The same went for the 4 to 4s. I have a 4 and my girlfriend has a 3GS that are both perfectly good and working phones. We are upgrading now only because we want something new. May even wait for 6.

I didn't plan to upgrade yet either but I noticed since installing iOS7 my 4S is a little slow, not to mention the iMessage fail. I like the new iOS7 a lot so I will probably get a 5S.

It actually was 5mp to 8mp!
