    quote:

    " Apple was working on this right before the NeXT merger, return of Jobs. I think it was codename south by southwest (SXSW) or something related to the southwest. The Trimedia chip was made by phillips and was a DSP processor. Apps had to be rewritten to take advantage of it. At the 1997 boston Macworld Expo, phillips trimedia team had a booth setup and I did a press interview with them. They wouldnÕt comment on any future products at the time, but I knew they were working on this because there had been a few leaks to MacWeek and MacWorld magazines.
