this would have been rage worthy for me

for sure man. what the ****.

so working with ICS apparently rapes computers.

looks like it could be awhile longer before we get a slew of ICS roms

I almost said something, but the store was packed, and for the sake of self-image, I didn't want to blow up on her while others were patiently waiting in line.

Truthfully, it pissed me off, but the little gnarled area wasn't worth throwing a fit in public.

Looks like my next phone is going to be quad-core. We'll see how the battery life is though...
my single core gets around 8 hours of heavy use with SoaB 1.3 can only believe that a quad will get half that.

I don't even have a quad in my laptop...

Hi, you must be new here. We ignore System's reposts, because it reposts the exact same thread, ie: same version number, same joke that was funny two months ago, but no longer is. We remake the thread ourselves and ignore the new, System created one because we want to. Welcome to PBNation, newbie.

Also, if your feelings are easily hurt, avoid OT:Auto and OT:Tech and OThoto, and Small Talk... well, to be honest, just avoid everything in the OT section...

Why not just ask a mod to change the title? That's how the GDT works.

my laptop has a quad, sure its nice for playing some games and converting video, but 1.5hr battery life sucks *** cheeks. Plus, look how long it took Android to get optimized for dual core, ICS isnt even out yet. Imagine how long itll be until quad core becomes the norm and Android adapts to it...Though if you have another year or so left on your contract, i totally see where youre coming from

Maybe ICS is secretly optimized for quads.......

i guess its possible? i dont know anything about how optimizing really works in this case, but say ICS is generally optimized for "multiple cores" then i guess it would be able to utilize 4 cores properly? Treghc prollys knows a lot more about this lol

Mods already hate everyone around them. Think of how testy they would be if we were constantly bugging them with thread name change requests?

While I wouldn't hesitate to pick up a quad core phone, I feel like its overkill. Like everyone else on here, I'm seriously wondering how the battery life will be. But I guess with the rumors of ICS being able to freeze apps w/o root, it looks like they're really trying to make stock software more battery friendly. Possibly in anticipation for quad-core?

I'm waiting on this ****..

Graphene improves lithium-ion battery capacity and recharge rate by 10x

Quote:
Hold onto your hats: Graphene, the one true savior, has now found a use in the one technological arena that needs it most: batteries. Namely, engineers at Northwestern University have found that a specially-crafted graphene electrode can allow a lithium-ion battery to store 10 times as much power and charge 10 times faster — and last longer, too.

The new anode is still made from sheets of graphene (graphite is simply millions of layers of graphene) but the researchers have punched millions of tiny (10-20nm) holes through each layer of graphene (pictured right). Instead of each lithium ion having to travel around the outer edge of each graphene layer, they can now just jump through the holes (or nanoholes, as they’re being called). Furthermore, the engineers introduced clusters of silicon between each layer of graphene; graphene on its own can only carry one lithium ion per six carbon atoms, but each silicon atom can hold four lithium ions. The combined effect is an anode that can store 10 times more power (30,000 mAh instead of 3,000) and 10 times the charging speed (15 minutes instead of two hours). If you haven’t already shuffled slightly further under your desk to hide your excitement, get this: the Northwestern battery, after 150 charge/discharge cycles, is also five times more effective than any lithium-ion battery currently on the market.
