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.

Obviously Apple and Intel might clash. Apple doesn't like Intel supporting the MeeGo community. I think Apple will do something rather radically different, as always. Here's my crazy thoughts:

1. Apple would expand its software lines beyond the mainstay pieces of software like iTunes.
2. Apple would make its own programming languages like Microsoft and Google.
3. Apple would make a brand new operating system from scratch.
4. Apple would make a deal with Sony and IBM to relaunch PowerPC desktop computers.

I know I sound crazy right now. So does Apple. Maybe crazy people don't understand crazy things, I suppose.

Way ahead of you. Objective C is essentially Apple-only language these days (nobody else uses it).

I don't know where these people that think Apple are "crazy" are. Certainly stock market isn't thinking that way, and they would probably be the first to take note of insane behavior.

People that think Apple are crazy should get their own head checked.

You have way too much trust in the stock market.

Where was the market four years ago at the height of the real estate / mortgage bundle?

Heavily invested in sub-par mortgage backed securities.


Right, because that's not crazy.
