Quad core is already an overkill. 8 cores would be like killing the other competitors, resurrecting them and killing them again. Badass Samsung.

Yes, we know that this processor will function only four cores at a time, but then the fact is it still has 8 cores in total anyway. So what's the fuzz about calling this octo-core? Is it too hard to swallow the fact that Apple doesn't even have the capacity to make its own processors? I would love to see Windows Phone and Android take Apple out of business. Apple have been bad, and deserves some good spanking.

Correct me if I'm wrong again, but I think Apple did issue a statement a few months ago saying they won't be having Samsung anymore as their iOS processor manufacturer. Then a couple of weeks or so ago, Apple issued another statement saying they will continue working with Samsung, and then a few days later Samsung issued its own statement saying they will raise the prices for the processors they make for iOS devices, and Apple has been speechless about this. I love Flipboard on both my iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3, it keeps me up to date on relevant news

Wait - this will mean widgets can move faster, fantastic. Ohh, and facebook will also open faster and may their games actually goes faster.
This is like putting a V12 motor in a mini minor with no wheels.

And Desktops will be as always way more powerfull than laptops, and it goes on.

You now, PS1 was weaker than most of the PCs on 1998, and does this made it useless? Still sold a lot. Even when computers had a lot better graphics. Laptops came, and the best ones match good desktops, wich still survived.

One doesn't kill the other. It's about the use. Hardcore addicted gamers will probably cary always a powerfull laptop. And most of the people don't have the money to afford a this grade cellphone/tablet.
