Cringely: Apple-Intel more than it seems

Bill McGonigle of BFC Computing in his comment to my previous post “Maybe it wasn’t about the Mac Mini After All” that Cringely sees a vast conspiracy behind the Apple-Intel switch. I’ve heard a lot of discussion, including some pretty wild speculation on Slashdot (this one was a favorite. Warning: this one uses the “shit” word, so stay away if easily offended.)

A fellow member challenged me on the ProFox list on whether I thought the Apple switch was bad for Microsoft. No, I think the Apple switch is good for Apple. As far as Microsoft goes, I think they are on a self-destructive death spiral that they brought on themselves. It isn’t going to be Beauty that kills the Beast. In this case, the Beast needs no help.
