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.

Funny how the author is talking without facts!

PowerPc is one of the successful chips to ever come along. hmmm lets see PS3 based on the powerpc with over 35M units sold,
ok..how about the all famous microsoft xbox with "xenon chip" in the xbox that has sold 39M units, is oh lets all guess together.. yes powerpc architecture.

just because apple failed to use it to its full potential is not powerpc's fault, they are a for profit company and will do what is necessary to increase profits further.

arm processors will go to 64bit when the market warrants it, there is ALOT competition for 64bit cpu's out there like the Quad core 64bit mips SOC from broadcom
