ARC is very different from a garbage collector.  For one thing, it is deterministic.  Retains and releases still happen in the same order and at the same times, you just don't have to think about them.  It isn't doing anything magic, it's just doing (a more efficient implementation of) the same thing that you do with manual retain and release messages.  Oh, and you get zeroing weak references too.

It does make sense, but I still like being in control. :-)

I guess I'll reconsider some time in the future.
