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.

Obviously Apple and Intel might clash. Apple doesn't like Intel supporting the MeeGo community. I think Apple will do something rather radically different, as always. Here's my crazy thoughts:

1. Apple would expand its software lines beyond the mainstay pieces of software like iTunes.
2. Apple would make its own programming languages like Microsoft and Google.
3. Apple would make a brand new operating system from scratch.
4. Apple would make a deal with Sony and IBM to relaunch PowerPC desktop computers.

I know I sound crazy right now. So does Apple. Maybe crazy people don't understand crazy things, I suppose.
