Apple to switch to Intel?
I first heard this rumor from Scoble a while back at a geek dinner. Then the Wall Street Journal reported on it a few weeks ago.
Apple Computer plans to announce Monday that it’s scrapping its partnership with IBM and switching its computers to Intel’s microprocessors, CNET News.com has learned.
The announcement is expected Monday at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco, at which Chief Executive Steve Jobs is giving the keynote speech. The conference would be an appropriate venue: Changing the chips would require programmers to rewrite their software to take full advantage of the new processor.
All I know is… I’ll be watching.
