Well to be honest I can't see how anything could be worse than Motorola's luke warm chip strategy up to now. So this must be good news. Also asthere is a possibility of it being sold later, we may see IBM buying them up for the powerPC technology.

Or of course maybe intel will buy them to kill the technology.

I do hope IBM step in, as this could leave the PPC a little vulnerable...

Good job that IBM are at the pinnacle of PPC development though isn`t it???

If Intel bought it to kill the technology that would leave Apple up ship creek without a paddle.

Oh, hang on ... Forgot. the new G5 is an IBM creation.

Oh well ...Scratch that thought .... Doesn't do the G4 a lot of favours though.
