Really? Please provide proof of that claim since Apple couldn't. I bet the S4 Krait is faster...

Apple is notorious for their "X times faster" claims. Let's wait to see what Nvidia finds...

Graphically it doesn't come close to the A5X, and since the entire experience is GPU accelerated... there you go.

Yea, it will probably lose. I'm just interested in what they find. Apple always takes the best case and puts it in their presentation as the average.

As the article states though, it really doesn't matter.

Glad you had fun.

I don't think I could justify waiting 10 hrs for any device from any company, that's why it was such a shock to me. lol

Just... wow...
He waited 10 hours for the iphone so he wouldn't have to waste more than 10 hours in rebooting an Android phone everytime it acted up.

6 months for the E Class and 3.5 months for the CLS. That's though.

But compare 10h to around 6-8 weeks of back-order delay after the initial release. I'd say it's worth it even when you're not a die-hard fan. Especially considering it's the only phone I'm interested in for personal usage.
Yea, but then you get to at least wait at home for your car. With 10 hrs, you're waiting in the street.

I can understand waiting in line with people who are also fans. I've only done it twice myself. They were only short waits though. One was for Crysis, bout an hour in a busy store. It was ok, but most guys there were bragging about all the games they pirate and how the graphics suck on all games .PC fanboys for you ::. The second time was Halo 3. I only did that to make up the numbers for my mate at EB. That was 3 hours. It sucked, no one talked to anyone really. Halo fanboys :: They only talk when there is a mic to scream into.

I remember the last iPad release. TNT delivered early, you'd think people would be happy, but they mostly got complaints because it arrived on the day they DIDN'T take of work... FFS, TNT will redeliver for free, just go online tick the box and it'll be there the day you expected.
