As far as I know, as we all move towards functional programming we
won't have to worry too much about it as it gets taken care of for us.
 Also, in Android and Java itself there are really good apis that
shield us from the hard stuff, there's no need to work with threads
directly.  I haven't come across an equivalent in Objective-C...

On this topic (sort of), this is an interesting article I read the
other day where they took a different approach:

"In fact they ended up by doing all the business logic for their
platform: all trades, from all customers, in all markets - on a single
thread. A thread that will process 6 million orders per second using
commodity hardware."
