Consoles punch well above their weight simply because it is far easier to optimize for one set of hardware but PC always wins in the end through brute force.
I'm not shocked at all.
Was it in danger?
They're butthurt that they can't snoop on you as easily.
But can it play Crysis?
Oh look two hilariously over priced headphone manufacturers are fighting over stupid things.
At work I love my ThinkPad T430. It's plenty fast and small enough to be portable. Outside of work though I would never give up my desktop. My personal laptop is an ancient 12 year old Vaio that I barely use because I have very little need to be portable at home. When I'm on the go I just use my phone albeit rarely. I have no need for a tablet and would rather spend the money on upgrading my desktop.
So what does this new phone do that will make people just camp in line for weeks to be the first to own it? Oh right! It doesn't matter! It could be a box filled with rocks and Apple could sell millions of them at premium prices!
Apple selling something that isn't what it appears to be? Imagine that.
shocking. this is why we need net neutrality.
