Apple Another Apple-to-switch-Macs-to-ARM post. "Apple engineers have grown confident that the chip designs used for its mobile devices will one day be powerful enough to run its desktops and laptops, said three people with knowledge of the work, who asked to remain anonymous because the plans are confidential. Apple began using Intel chips for Macs in 2005." No idea when Apple will make the switch, but they will do it. I'm thinking 5-10 year timeframe.

I think the amount of effort one needs to put in to earn the status of fanboy has been lowered considerable. Even owning an Apple product will get you that label.

For some reason a number of people, certainly present on this site as well, want to terminate any chance of a reasonable discussion by labeling someone as a fanboy. If you don't say anything negative about Apple, have an Apple product or say something bad about Google you get called a fanboy and deemed unreasonable.

In this case someone made a slight mistake, which he admitted without any struggle shortly later. He gets accused of being a fanboy, rewriting history and even being a risk that his claim goes 'round all the forums causing legions of other fanboys to repeat it.

Not so long ago on this site someone was upset at Apple for suing The Beatles and the original iPod laughed at for not having a shuffle function. Both false claims and even though these claims are much more easily repeated, spread around and even understood by the general public it never happened, nor did anyone else but me point out the error, nor did the people making these false claims retract them or even responded.

BTW why don't you add me on Facebook, you always tend to reply to me just before the deadline and then I'm not allowed to respond!
