More IBM/Apple Gossip
I have an Apple-connected friend who works at IBM in Austin. If you
read any of the Mac news-and-rumor-stirred-in-an-unholy-mix sites they
are all abuzz with the idea that Apple will soon drop Motorola CPUs.
The thinking seems to be that they lag behind Intel on price and
performance and the gap is widening. Further, Motorola isn't all that
interested in keeping up, as they are focused on the embedded market
these days. My IBM friend says this is true.
Disclaimer: Newsgroup gossip is NOT a reliable source of info... but it is interesting.
