So says the CEO of ARM http://www.technologyreview.com/news/507116/moores-law-is-becoming-irrelevant/ I think this is an important topic. My take on it is that's it's becoming more and more true for consumer devices. For a lot of people, old macs (say first core2) are enough for their daily needs (media consumption, ms office). Heck now even a tablet can handle most of those with ease. With the merging of mobile and desktop OSs, this will further hold back the computing requirements (Windows 8 is a prime example). It's kind of a dilemna for Apple because it has to force machines to become obsolete for no good reason in order to keep selling hardware. For the time being this is still justifiable for the older iOS devices, but I look forward to seeing the reasons they come up with for 64bit macs (GPU limitation was the basic ML argument, not convincing).
