iPHONE 5 - FAST Scrolling PROBLEM!!!

It seems that there is a problem in fast scrolling on iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5 with both iOS 6 and 6.0.1 which may be a possible  screen fault on both devices. 
The issue was announced on Recombu site after a tweet from CMA Megacorp developer. 

You can watch it in the video below:

At this point we do not know if it is a manufacturing issue or intentional behavior, but since the issue just now, two months after the release of the iPhone 5, shows that it does not affect users.

Windows Live Messenger - ENDS

Just a while ago, Microsoft has officially announced the withdrawal of the well known Windows Live Messenger and its integration in Skype.
Every user can login to the   existing Messenger account by upgrading Skype to the latest version and chat with the already existing contacts.

Microsoft's HARDWARE

As we all know, Microsoft invested in developing Operating systems and left hardware to its partners. (There are some exceptions of course, but they are few!)
This may be changing, rumors say that Microsoft is developing its own Windows Phone Hardware. According to media reports on Friday, Microsoft is working with Asian suppliers to create a new Mobile phone.
Microsoft has not yet publicly acknowledged the rumors, and they say that, they believe in their partners and together they will launch Windows Phone 8 to the Market.

MediaTek Processors

Next generation Quad-core CPU - MTK 6588

All MediaTek Processors Specs

The new MTK 6588 (Quad-core) has the new GPU PowerVR SGX544, supporting FullHD video without delays!

It supports higher-quality RAM, 13 megapixel camera and faster network speeds!!!

The new chips (both) have 28nm architecture, so devices are becoming thinner, faster and more energy efficient!

MT6588 quad-core devices

The MT6588 quad-core devices hasn’t been officially on stores yet, and now we have words from this Taiwan-based chip manufacturer; MediaTek that they will be releasing the MTK6599 chipset, which is an 8-core CPU chip with LTE support just before the end of 2013.

MT6599 CPU chip characteristics
  • supports LTE
  • uses 28nm conversion process, pretty much better than the MT6588′s 40nm (the lower the number, the better)
  • uses A7 architecture which consumes less energy than A9
  • it now has double graphics performance and by Imagination SGX544 3D functionality
  • made with SRAM free driver IC to reduce the cost of the panel
  • able to support up to 13 megapixels camera quality
  • has a price of only $18 to $20 per chip piece, relatively cheaper with its competitor; Qualcomm S4 at US$30 – US$40 price tag

Expected trends with the rise of MT6599 devices

  • Quad-core smartphones that are produced by Chinese manufacturers with prices of $320 will go down to $150 or less.
  • We will se the Krait 1.7Ghz MSM8960A in the near future, this is same product with Quad-core MSM8974 dual-core, rather than next to the launch of the 8225Q.
  • It will be a 50-50 percent estimated ratio of proportion for MT6583/MT6588 and the MT6599 chipset on the fourth quarter next year.
  • MT6588 will maintain an overall ASP of just $10 above.
  • Chinese market will be flooded with smartphones of 13MP CMOS snappers.
