    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.

    Here's the quote that is quite enlightening:

    Although I know quite well enough that rumors are rumors until something changes, it is fun to dream about this stuff. And, hey, if it does come to pass, we can say "We knew it!"
