Adding the HD sound to the laptops doesn't really give any advantage considering the fact the most of the laptop users normally hook up with head phones. The HD codes for a desktop mother board is definitely a good addition, but do we also need to buy a special aset of speakers instead of regular cheaper ones.

As far as I know, at the present time only 1 Wolfson part announced has used the Tiny Core, but clearly plans are afoot for many more.

I had an out of date iPod replaced by apple because the sounds chip (a microbga)went bad. You could squeeze the ipod in a specific spot and the sounds would work. Presumably broken solder joints. My only point is that more than sound quality and cost are on the list of requirements. I believe that this particular iPod had the Wolfson audio chip.

Develop cost-neutral solutions, enable smaller form-factors, noticeably improve functionality - get by fine without Apple.

It is possible that Apple will come back. When a company has a believe in itself, it always does well. The world judged through the window of Apple, but it has shown it merits its space in the market.

BTW - Wolfson uses TinyCore audio DSP from Oxford Digital (a 2006 Sony spin-out). http://www.wolfsonmicro.com/media_centre/item/Wolfson_licenses_Oxford_Digitals_TinyCore_DSP/
