    Now that the entire Mac lineup has gone Intel--man, never thought I write that--I was thinking back to all the excitement over the G5 and IBM's future roadmap. What is going on with their chips? Are they still porting things from POWER to PowerPC? Or is PowerPC going to move fully to embedded devices?

    i guess that is an interesting question. does ibm really need powerpc when they have power for the high-end machines? the answer would be "yes" especially for the embedded space. however, they're still using them for blade servers.
