64 bits ARM

Market has been anticipating 64 bits ARM for sometimes. Finally, Apple comes out first. I am not too sure about the benefit of having 64 bits ARM on a tablet given its use. Who knows, when there is a better specification, engineers will find a way to discover its potential. Regardless of the potential of 64 bits ARM on a tablet, I am pretty sure it will benefit server, desktop and laptop computer. Given time, a full function OSX will be ported to ARM and the future generation Mac will be ARM based. The next apparent question is, "What will Intel do?"

I agreed until I saw people carrying it and taking pictures in Grand Canyon.

Here in Silicon Valley, I see iPads & other tablets used quite often for taking pictures and videos, just like a huge smart phone.  I may think it looks stupid, and that even a cheap camera will give better results (due to optical zoom), but apparently lots of people feel differently.

I haven't asked anyone about it, but my guess is they like the large "viewfinder" and simple operation.

I find it interesting that the iPad Air has HD video capture, but I wonder how often the camera on an iPad or any other tablet actually gets used. Perhaps it is more useful on the Mini, but it seems like a full-sized iPad is an awkward platform for photography.

Last gen Kindle (Kindle HD) had MIMO; current Kindle HDX is lighter (13.2 oz), and probably faster (2.2GHz quad core).  I guess the big Apple advance is 64-bits.

Larger Retina Screen?

I don't understand the statement about "larger Retina screen" because the iPad Air has a 9.7" screen, the same size as the iPad 4. Yes, the iPad mini now has more pixels, but also the same screen size.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
