In the News This 24/7 Wall Street article displays three common media ailments: hyperbole, a love for top ten lists, and an obsession with December predictions for the coming year (which off course OSNews is obviously also falling victim to), and there are some predictable losers on this list (Blockbuster Video, anyone?). I thought it would be an interesting topic for OSNews because three of the companies/brands are quite familiar to us: Palm, Motorola, and Sun Microsystems.

That reminds me of the numerous threads on macrumors of people crapping on about how terrible Intel GPU's are, and how horrible the performance is. One can't help but look at the Nvidia fiasco with failing GPU's and chipsets to thank ones lucky starts that feature fetish didn't get the best of him. People may go on about performance all they like but given the fact that Nvidia can't get their act together in terms of producing products that aren't dying in a manner of months, I'm more than happy to have something something slower but more reliable.

I have - my iMac has an ATI GPU in it, however, my MacBook has a X3100 GPU in it. As for my future MacBook, it depends on what is on offer, I might be forced to purchase a MacBook Pro if Nvidia becomes the chipset of choice for future MacBooks.
