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.

To me Apple can use whatever CPU they want. I didn't care for them when they were PowerPC and I don't care for them being Intel ... I prefer to choose what HW I want to run as much as I like being able to control *my* OS and do with it whatever I want.

Funny how people that "don't care" about something care enough to read the article about something they don't care about, and then care enough to waste time commenting that they don't care.

Well, that was my point that you try to avoid ;)
