Facebook partners with Qualcomm for Home optimization


I am tired of hearing about it too. You would think they brought a revolutionary product to market today with this hype when in reality they held a press conference for a custom launcher. I totally think the guys behind Nova Launcher or Apex Launcher should do this for their next major update the release to Google Play just to troll the Zuckerberg.

This is pure marketing bullshit. A custom launcher is a customer launcher. It will run just as well on an Nvidia Tegra 4 as it will on an Exynos Octa or a Snapdragon 400, 600, or 800.
