Why we will have new computers in January.
Here are a few reasons I came up with that shows we will get new computers ( processor ) in January. This will also not use the Motorola Proccessor.
1) Mac OS 9 will not be bootable, Mac OS 9 runs on Motorola Chips only. Mac OS X can run on different processors since it is Unix based.
2) AMD has mentioned a partnership with Apple.
3) Its time for an update.

All of those are good reason for speculation, but it remains just that, speculation and hopefulness. Just because its possible doesn't mean its going to happen.
Apple wants to move on from OS9 - you don't need a new processor to justify not being able to boot to OS9
AMD is a posibility, but delivering in that time scale is something different.
And we've needed new processors for years, nothing new there.
All that said - I would *love* to see new machines, but I don't think it will happen.

1)I have an IBM G3 in my 700 MHz iBook, and it runs OS 9. Therefore, OS 9 runs on non-Motorola processors.
2)AMD has not mentioned or announced a partnership with Apple, despite a large number of rumors.
3)Yes, we do need faster machines.

Re: Where's Waldo
Is this some sort of trick question/statement? For the life of me I can't find the rumor in this post.
Looks more like an opinion to me, a poorly though out one, but and opinion nonetheless.

I don't see what OS 9 not running on future hardware is supposed to prove. G4 towers can't boot up from System 6 even though System 6 runs on a Motorola chip. This is pretty commonplace in the Mac world.
