Cogs can think.

I'm a mere, tiny, insignificant cog in a whole clockwork of stupidity.
The little cog that wanted to break free, I am.

Final thoughts on Apple

Okay, I swear this is the last post I'm gonna make on this whole Apple/Intel deal before the keynote. Here are my predicitions for what could happen tomorrow. I'm not explaining them all again.

Apple will not make a full switch to the Pentium processor. As far as I'm concerned, it is far more likely that Intel will OR supply Apple with Xscale processors for a new PDA/tabletpc like device, OR will start making PowerPC processors for Apple. Apple owns a lot of IP on the PPC, so Apple may have licensed that tech to Intel. Would be a win-win situation for Intel: they get Apple as their customer (which they have been wanting for a *long* time), *and* they could use that IP to improve the Pentium line, gaining a competitive advantage over AMD. For Apple, Intel will prove a better supplier than IBM.

In 24 hours, we'll know.

no xscale. apple will not introduce a new operating system and i don't think osx would run on an xscale processor.

i also believe they'll announce an tablet mac, but with osx running on ultra low voltage pentium M processor.

why? because they can osx on it.

apple will not develop a new newton.

I think apple will do quite the opposite to make the marketing impact even bigger. I think they will announce that they will use the cell-processor or something similar, just like the new consoles will use a cell-processor or something similar.

It's NOT the OS but the MEDIA

Just my personal thoughts
