In his latest column, Robert Cringely has an interesting take on the Apple/Intel news mania. The article poses five questions: “What happened to the PowerPC’s supposed performance advantage over Intel?”; “What happened to Apple’s 64-bit operating system?”; “Where the heck is AMD?”; “Why announce this chip swap a year before it will even begin for customers?”; and “Is this all really about Digital Rights Management?” In the final analysis, Cringely’s conclusion is that it is all about Microsoft. “That’s the story as I see it unfolding. Steve Jobs finally beats Bill Gates. And with the sale of Apple to Intel, Steve accepts the position of CEO of the Pixar/Disney/Sony Media Company.” [Thanks to MacMinute reader Tyler Lemke for this news tip.]
