Morphos PPCNux (German) as well as Pegasos-Forum (German) report about new information about Genesi's new G5 based mainboard. The mainboard which will feature the PowerPC 970MP CPU will have the new microBTX format (26.4x26.7cm/10.4"x10.5"). As system controller IBM's 945 northbridge was chosen which is the corresponding version of the current PowerMac's system controller. ATI will provide the graphics chipset for the new mainboard. It is currently not known which product name the mainboard will have. In addition, Mupper 1.0 has been released.

That iPod rant reminds me of a Steve Jobs quote I just read today: "...but you've got to be sure it's not a technology in search of a problem."

Then again it never really seemed like BBRV had much of an idea of where markets were actually going. Set top boxes? PDA portals? SmartCards? Nu-uh. Try again. And again. And again.

That's why Jobs is a billionaire at 50 while BBRV will still be making snide comments and trying to out-Jobs Steve Jobs ten years from now - that is if he can still find the venture capital. Sooner or later too many bridges will be burnt.

At least it's a case of "the more the merrier" when it comes to the ppc platform.
