Hardware, Embedded Systems And yet another item on the iPad? Are we serious? Yes, we are, since this one is about something that even geeks who aren't interested in the iPad itself should find intriguing. Steve Jobs said yesterday that the iPad is powered by an Apple A4 processor, but contrary to what many seem to think - it wasn't designed in-house at all.

You were using an arbitrary definition of RISC, and I was just simply letting you know that the "reduced" in RISC does not refer to the number of instructions in a specific ISA/microarchitecture.

I wasn't refuting the gist of your point, I was simply making a small correction. Reading and comprehension and all that jazz...
