BusinessWeek: This will be the ‘Summer of Mac’

In BusinessWeek’s Byte Of The Apple column, Alex Salkever says that a promising new set of chips, a Mac OS X version of QuarkXpress, a surge in the online ad market, and the new iTunes Music Store could “goose” Apple sales and its stock. “Several stars are set to align for Steve Jobs & Co. Although Apple won’t talk about it, IBM has confirmed that it’s developing a new set of chips for the Mac. Desktop publishing and graphics software giant Quark is hinting it will finally bring out an OS X version of its software. Finally, the creative markets in advertising and media should begin to rebound in the summer, which will allow media and advertising companies to proceed with long-postponed hardware upgrades.”
