I imagine that question only distantly related to programing are off-topic such as 'What is the best laptop for programming'. However my question https://stackoverflow.com/questions/19939767/is-cmstepcounter-supported-on-the-new-ipads relating to a specific API was closed because
"Questions about general computing hardware and software are off-topic for Stack Overflow unless they directly involve tools used primarily for programming. You may be able to get help on Super User."
However I don't understand how this question could be closed while a question like this: Does Apple's M7 Processor support low-power GPS tracking? remains opens even though it doesn't ask about a specific API. Could someone help me understand the difference or suggest a better site to submit my question to since Super User doesn't even have a Core Motion framework tag?
edit:For those who can't see my question this was the gist:
Apple added step count support with the M7 in the new iPhone 5s. Is step data via Core Motion's CMStepCounter method available on the new iPads that have the M7?
