So perfect! This is why the spec arms race was always so silly. You’d go from 256mb of memory to 512mb to 1gb and never notice a difference. The same with the latest-and-greatest Intel chips. The end performance never really got better because software was always using 100% of the power that was available. I love how the mobile phone has forced our hand. Both on a performance and a visual front, we have no choice but to cut back.

Side Example: When my HTC Evo came out, the company was boasting that the phone now had seven panels instead of three. You could fill seven whole screens with shortcuts and widgets. I thought at the time what a great idea this was. After using the phone for a month, I ended up leaving 4/7 of them blank. They just ate up battery life and taxed my mind. More isn’t always better.
