Apple CNBC had an interview with Steve Jobs. In the interview, Jobs talks about the new Apple store in New York which will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The interview is quite lightweight - Jobs doesn't reveal anything we haven't heard before and the questions aren't particularly incisive. One interesting comment is made towards the end of the interview though. When asked about AMD, Jobs says that AMD is strong in the high-end server sphere but that Intel have the best notebook and desktop chips (he mentions Intel's Yonah chip) which is where Apple's primary focus lies.

I'm sorry, but this is just a tired and old argument that will not change.

"it harder to allow os x to legaly run on any other x86"

It's not legal to run OS X on non-Apple hardware, period. EFI didn't "force" this to happen, it's just been the way it's been (with the exception of the clone years).

Plenty of companies lock software to their hardware. I don't hear you pounding on Toshiba/Panasonic/Sony/Etc's doors for not letting you install their TV and DVD player software on other machines. Sheesh.
