I'm just a little cleavage monkey


"I felt something, a disturbance in the network, as if a million mac zealots cried out in horror and were suddenly silenced"

Apple announced today that they have been planning a migration for the last 5 years to an Intel chipset. This gives Apple cheaper and faster chips than what IBM has been producing for them. Also, I would supposed that the cost to build the machines will drop since Apple will be using "standardized" silicon vs the low volume chip.

But Apple has poked fun of Intel in the past (link to ad.) And Mac loyalists can be freakier than Anglophiles so I'm sure the boards will be heating up tonight (Shotgun Wedding?) But it should only mean good things for those of us holding APPL stock, or who might otherwise have a vested interest in the company's health.

I'm just happier about this than the whole Adobe/Macromedia thing. This should mean an end to the PC only software that has been a hurdle from the begining.
