Morphos PPCNux (German) as well as Pegasos-Forum (German) report about new information about Genesi's new G5 based mainboard. The mainboard which will feature the PowerPC 970MP CPU will have the new microBTX format (26.4x26.7cm/10.4"x10.5"). As system controller IBM's 945 northbridge was chosen which is the corresponding version of the current PowerMac's system controller. ATI will provide the graphics chipset for the new mainboard. It is currently not known which product name the mainboard will have. In addition, Mupper 1.0 has been released.

What snide remarks? Are we talking about the same blog...

I read that they compliment Apple and Steve Jobs specifically (they certainly did in the prvious iPod blog). I think you are missing the point. The SIM in a mobile is the same chip as a smart card and they are suggesting the as broadband networks become more common and available - anywhere - that the mobile industry in in trouble. That is if Apple can make the jump to an internet supported video "skype" phone who needs a mobille. I think they are being very complimentary of Apple. Also, if I am not mistaken Genesi is self-funded (according to their website). I bet they neither want or need VC funding.

Are you Denmark? Did you see this one?

I think you are right: They clearly agree with Apple's approach and also congratulate them.
