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.

Apple use their partners as stepping stones.

Steve Jobs is the kind of guy who thinks Intel is everything that’s vulgar about the PC. Switching Mac to x86 was an unavoidable choice after IBM let Apple down. Apple will not let this same thing happen again, even with Intel. Complete self-reliance is their goal.
