    From MacNN:

    Columnist John Yunker thinks that Apple may be in talks with Intel not about using Pentium processors in Macs, but rather about WiMAX, a next-generation home wireless technology. "There have been lots of speculation about Apple launching an A/V equivalent of iTunes. Now, connecting the cable or DSL modem to the TV is a hurdle we're seeing lots of companies tackle, with limited success." Yunker believes that WiMAX may hold the solution." That's because only WiMAX can stream multiple streams of HDTV content in difficult RF environments to all ends of the home. Apple may be trying to keep on top of the latest technology, as it did in 1997 when it introduced AirPort. "Apple likes to lead with wireless technology, not follow." (Background: last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Apple and Intel were in talks.)

    Multiple HDTV streams. This is much more interesting than the cpu rumors from last week.

    I don't know if it's more interesting but I like the idea more than Apple switching to Intel processors unless they are PowerPC.

    As for the article I think it's a great idea.

    Before you go all off about a bad report from MacNN.com, you would do well to research the technology and its purposes.
