Apple Another Apple-to-switch-Macs-to-ARM post. "Apple engineers have grown confident that the chip designs used for its mobile devices will one day be powerful enough to run its desktops and laptops, said three people with knowledge of the work, who asked to remain anonymous because the plans are confidential. Apple began using Intel chips for Macs in 2005." No idea when Apple will make the switch, but they will do it. I'm thinking 5-10 year timeframe.

Do you want to know why such a 'lie' pisses off people?

Because it may seem 'small' to you, however, the way psychology and the internet works is thus.

Some random asshat says Apple co-created ARM on OSNews. Then other people repeat this falsehood on other forums and other sites because they saw this 'truth' on OSNews. Then more people do so, and finally one little falsehood becomes another part of Apple's current fan-boy predilection for re-writing history when a big name Apple blogger repeats it.

So sticking to real & verifiable facts while posting here is much more appreciated in the long run.

what is most popular 8bit home computer? ;)
