@hm: it may be too premature to declare the "success" of Thunderbolt high speed interconnect. Apple has had a history of going it alone throughout its corporate history; the only differentiators this time are the much higher volume consumer devices (as opposed to desktops of the past where Apple received a drubbing!). Apple also makes it easier for others to fill in the gaps it doesn't serve (read: flash-capable devices, for one!). I don't believe Intel is going after Apple's foundry business entirely for revenue reason (there are TSMC's, UMC's of the world for lower costs for that). I think Intel sees an opportunity for technology collaborations for its next generation of Silicon. Dr. MP Divakar

Food for thought: Intel once made one of the fastest ARM chips ever, the StrongArm (later called XScale), before selling it off to Marvell. One of the architects of that chip? Dan Dobberpuhl, who later started PA Semiconductor, which was afterwards bought by Apple. So many of Apple's ARM team were once designing ARM chips for Intel.

Are you who I THINK you are? Did you live at 4615 Blackford Ave. in San Jose, CA around 1980? Please contact me! David Humes (dot com)

I am not sure Apple should go down this road. http://www.seapowergent.com/
