    Interesting article from CNET that splashes a little cold water on Phil Schiller's marketing hype and explains the real value of pioneering the mobile 64-bit market.

    Nice read and I completely agree. Apple hyped up the 64bit but it's nice to see where we're headed in the future.

    That's an interesting read. I do agree that Apple is using this as a marketing tool to some extent. But I also believe that by Apple doing this will also force competition in doing the same thereforee advancing the industry in developing for this architecture whether it's in the form of hardware or software. I think that the mobile industry will make the transition faster then PC. But as of right now I have to agree that Apple and it's iPhone 5s are a marketing tool for what's to come.

    Apple hyped it like nobody else can, but suddenly everyone is announcing 64-bit processors in their upcoming phones. Samsung, I'm talking about you. And LG, etc...

    Here's to the crazy ones.
    The misfits.
    The rebels.
    The troublemakers.
    The round pegs in the square holes.
    The ones who see things differently.
    They're not fond of rules.
    And they have no respect for the status quo.
    You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
    About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.
    Because they change things.
    They invent.
    They imagine.
    They heal.
    They explore.
    They create.
    They inspire.
    They push the human race forward.

    Maybe they have to be crazy.
    How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
    Or sit in silence and hear a song that's never been written?
    Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
    We make tools for these kinds of people.
    While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
    Because the people who are crazy enough to think
    they can change the world, are the ones who do.

    Me too. Dreyfus did it best, but hearing Steve talk about HIS company is something special. Gives me chills every time.

    Completely agree. Dreyfus was perfect for this commercial. I like Steve in his element, which is keynotes. No one has or will do it better than he.

    His best element was salesmanship.
