Top 11 Apps Optimized for A7 and M7

The iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and new iPad Mini are now all packing the famous A7 microprocessor. This magnificent beast of engineering brilliance not only outperforms its predecessors in speed and battery life, it is also the first mobile 64-bit “system-on-a-chip” designed for mobile computing. What this means for fellow Candy Crush addicts (we have a Google Hangout every Sunday night) is the main CPU, graphics, and motion processor all sit together in a small cubical in the principal’s office and work together. Instead of delving deep into technical specifications of version numbers, register counts, cluster configurations and the like, let us assume the A7 is “the complete package,” doing everything a savvy person needs for updating Twitter or Facebook at a red light about the genius in front of you painting their toenails on their dashboard instead of updating Twitter or Facebook.

A while back I reviewed Moshi's Dulcia in-ear headphones. They had a great sound, but I read that to make them perform even better it was recommended to download and use the Burn-in Tool app.

I recently interviewed Moshi's director of product marketing, Spencer Pangborn, by email so he could explain how the headphone burn-in process worked.
