Intell in a mac ? Yeah .. when piggs can fly. And apparently .. they can. At seven PM local time I was following the live (typed) report of the first Apple Keynote for 2005 when this picture popped up onto my screen. I mean .. I knew there where going to be some new things out .. I knew we where going to have powerbooks (excuse me MACbooks) with intell chips .. but THIS picture .. I had never thought I would see. So yesterday I was a part of history . Reading the events as they happened I was at the ‘front row’ of the switch from Apple to Intell as Microsofts beloved Xbox 360 runs on Motorola chips.. Its a fucked up world. Yeahyeah .. Mac released some cool new software .. some new ipod gadgets and a dream of a MACBOOK with an Intell Processor. Now I have been dreaming of a Powerbook for about a year now .. and still no luck because they are too expensive. Along comes the macbook and its even MORE expensive !!!!! Frack !!!! Oh well .. time will tell what this year will bring. I’m gonna wait it out a little and see what happens to the second hand market of powerbooks.. Perhaps i’ll buy me one of those.
Following up on yesterdays post : I had barely finished the show when THIS popped along :
The ultimate Ipod Video Guide
