64-bit CPUs aren't any faster than 32-bit, they can just operate on bigger numbers. Which means basically nothing unless you have more than 4GB RAM. Which, unless I'm mistaken, these phones don't. So at this point the 64-bit CPU is a useless marketing gimmick. Don't expect it to do anything exciting for you.

I like you, Paul, and I hate Dubya just as much as the next Seattle liberal, but ripping on someone's amateur paintings is pretty pathetic. So he's a shitty artist, so what? Every good artist started out as a shitty artist.

I found the commenters more hilarious/sad than the piece itself. Yes, Slog has its fair share of incessant trolls who make idiotic comments on nearly every post (you all know who I'm talking about), but it appears that Seattle Weekly's comment sections are about on par with YouTube's when it comes to insightful commentary.

@34: Exactly. This allows House Republicans to save face because they can claim it wasn't them raising the taxes on the rich. And of course they're not going to obstruct Obama when he comes around in January and asks them to reinstate the tax cuts for the bottom 98%, because even though it's going to drive them crazy to do something Obama wants, it'd absolutely destroy them to face their constituents in two years and have to answer for why they refused to cut taxes on the middle class.
