Apple announcement reaction
With the A7 chip, the iPad Air offers twice the CPU and graphics performance of the previous iPad. The 64-bit architecture supports Open GL ES version 3.0, for \”game console-like visual effects.\”
A nearer-term reason the Apple A7 might appeal to programmers has nothing to do with its 64-bit nature: the ARMv8 architecture itself brings some real advantages.
One of them is a larger number of registers — tiny on-chip storage areas where the processor stores data for very fast access. ARMv8 roughly doubles general-purpose registers from 16 to 31, which means the chip needn\’t fritter away as many cycles swapping things into and out of memory.

We\’re joined by two gentlemen from dotCloud, the folks behind Docker. We chat about what Docker is best at, how far out the 1.0 release is, the projects use of Go, the future of Docker, and much more.

Docker is an open-source engine that automates the deployment of any application as a lightweight, portable,
self-sufficient container that will run virtually anywhere.
Docker containers can encapsulate any payload, and will run consistently on and between virtually any server. The same
container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop will run at scale, in production*, on VMs,
bare-metal servers, OpenStack clusters, public instances, or combinations of the above.
