Good strategy by Intel to go after single-threaded performance because it looks like they cannot compete (but close) with Ryzen on multi-thread with the same amount of cores. You can count on them aggressively marketing the fact that most computer use is single-threaded for most applications and only "specialized" use is multi-threaded.

No home button on the iPhone X seems like a questionable decision to me.

I dunno. Just sliding up seems like it will be pretty intuitive after a while. If it works every time, unlike today in their keynote. I'm sure once it is released it will just work....

The processor in the iPhone X seems very impressive. What it can do in software with photos seems almost magical compared to the first iPhone 10 years ago. Count on shortages of inventory until after Christmas on this one though.

That's why they delayed the preorders till oct 27 instead of sept.

I'd like an X, but at $1320, I'm not ready to order something that's more than my PC.

I'll prolly look at a 7 Plus or 8 Plus...
