I think you mean, Mandarin vs Parallax:)
Not too surprising.
Sammy decided to ship before the kernel incorporated the cpufreq governor for core switching.
Something we don’t know is how fast the arm firmware is able to switch processing between cores. I believe they are cache coherent, but you still need to pause the running threads, and migrate the register data.
The long-term solution is to give the kernel complete control over all the cores, and let it handle everything, but this isn’t ready yet.
BTW, unless sammy did something…odd…to the exynos, you should be able to run all eight cores in an aSMP fashion.
The Mandarin is asian, a genius, and has f***ing “magical” rings. You can’t change a character this much unless your vision is really intriguing. This new Mandarin doesn’t look interesting.
Also, I’ve serious problems with the notion that the IM movies are marvel’s “smartest”.
I think that the Captain America movie, surprisingly, takes that title. Besides the movie being, again, surprisingly good, it was able to sustain more serious themes for lengther periods than the IM films.
Also, X-Men has always had its “outsider” vibe.
Lastly, Howard the Duck!
How do you connect it to the nervous system?
The design is kinda bad, IMHO, as far as usability, especially if you have many feeds.
Feedly is better, but pulse is the best I’ve found for quick skimming, and then subsequent depth reading of things of interest.

All of those companies had their products integrated with google products, can the same be said of Apple (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mergers_and_acquisitions_by_Apple) or msft (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mergers_and_acquisitions_by_Microsoft)?

Patents are obviously one area (and, if their portfolio was overvalued, that might indicate that so is every other company’s such as Microsoft, Nokia, and Apple), but their RF expertise can’t be overstated.
Google simply doesn’t have the hardware expertise that motorola has (well, had, since now those people live in GooLand).
Since the pipeline for mobile products is aroung 18-24 months (according to Anandtech), we should be seeing Google phones built with Moto expertise in the next 6-12 months.
Just be patient…or, not. Whatever.
Awesome. Now someone needs to do the hard work of mapping permissions from the Android model to the selinux model.
The easier way to go, however, would be to have two profiles. One with selinux in permissive mode and the other for work with selinux in enforcing mode. The later profile would prevent non- authorized apps from being installed. You could even create a new encrypted overlay for that profile’s data for extra security.
There’s so much that could be done without introducing the unknown quantity of knox’s (or any other companies) software.
It’s amazing that oem’s continue to ignore the native linux solutions.
Android already takes advantage of namespacing via cgroups.
If you want an NSA designed MAC system then go with SELinux.
Thats been in the kernel for ages.
There are lighter weight options, but if you want to tout enterprise security, just use what’s in the frickin kernel for free.

So, where exactly are the build quality issues?
I only saw the one reference near the beginning that compared it, unfavorably, to a sony rx1, but that didn’t say what the actual problems were.
Also, is the video really a con? Did it take good video? I know it was hard to get to, but the quality would seem to be of more importance. Perhaps, a relative con?
Also, please start using a lightbox:)
Verge reviews could stand to be much more professional.
