Intel An interesting article at Ars Technica takes a look at some compelling data (the longer-than-normal processor update cycles in Apple's personal computer lineup) and speculates that Apple's enthusiasm for its partnership with Intel might be cooling. Like Apple's soured relationship with once-BFF Google, this may be the result of Intel's increasing activities in the mobile computing space.

I think it's pretty obvious that if a so called friend starts mowing your lawn, then you'll get pissed.

Apple clearly wants the entire mobile market in my view and if Intel do deliver on the promise then they simply become competitors and will unlikely work co-operatively on most things.

It's a reality that Apple needs to come to grips with. Google, Microsoft, Nokia, Intel to mention a few big players, not to mention all the Android-based devices.

No matter what each of us think of these variants of mobile devices, they each have their slice of the pie and I think Apple's share in that pie is going to shrink pretty rapidly over the coming years if not months.

Feature parity isn't far off.
