I just got this in the Hotline chats from a very professional and hatefull french hacker. It may say something of the way Apple is doing things back stage, at the end it is just a rumor: "Apple may finally getting closer to using some of the more obscure technologies it has purchased in the past several years. The Raycer purchase is rumored to be bringing to fruition a plan to add several coprocessor chips to future Mac hardware designs that will require no effort on developers' parts to get dramatically accelerated video, 3D, and other multimedia. Not only does this tie in nicely with the increasingly visual Digital Lifestyle, it also paves the way for the other technology purchase frequently speculated about: the high-end special effects software made by Nothing Real, now assimilated into the Cupertino collective. Along with the strengths of multiprocessing G4s and these new multimedia coprocessors, the purchase of Nothing Real helps bring the Final Cut/iMovie family into the next generation."
