Intel Apple's television ads for its new Macs boast that for years, Intel's chips have been "trapped inside PCs - dull little boxes, dutifully performing dull little tasks." Now, the voiceover proclaims, the Intel processor will finally be set free. Of course, that's not exactly the way Intel would put it. "Never would we characterize our customers that way."

...by going with AMD. AMD has invented the Dual Core chip, everyone knows that, AMD's dual core being light years ahead. But AMD keeps it simple, cheap, low power, reliable, everyone can afford it. Not only that, but if Apple would have went with AMD they could have kept the cool factor, exotic factor and would have gained a even bigger following. But I guess that the snow was going high in Steve's nose when he decided with who to go. Apple zealots and fanatics look real stupid now, and the rest of the world, well, will just run OS X on home cooked "dull little boxes", just like I have...@home...
