No real news here, but interesting nonetheless:<br><br>eWEEK: What would the addition of Apple [Computer Inc.] to the 64-bit industry mean to AMD, to the industry? <br><br>Ruiz: First of all, I have no indication that Apple is even considering what we make. I've heard rumors going around. But you know it would be interesting because at some point in time if Apple is going to do a 64-bit version, they're going to face the decision, what do they do for it? I cannot picture Apple putting an Itanium in their stuff. So I think if they're going to do that they're going to figure out some way to get a PowerPC version of that. Or they're going to have to consider one of the alternatives we offer and see there's many more than that. <br><br>eWEEK: So they're not in talks with you, they're not evaluating the chip as far as you know? <br><br>Ruiz: You know, if they were I couldn't tell you, and if they're not I shouldn't tell you. But I think it would be an interesting relationship if that ever really happened. <br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
