I don't really get the name, other than Jonah was used of God to (reluctantly) bring a whole nation (Ninevah) to repent just by telling them they were "goin' down" in forty days.
Maybe Yonah is giving a message the other manufacturers that they are "going down".
Maybe Yonah is the ultimate in CPUs. Intel was once the best. They may very well be again. Who knows.
As it is, I thought Apple was dead 5 years ago. Then they come up with OSX and iPod and they are the centerpiece of American culture.
Just like MS was so hot in the 90's and now everyone hates them.
Anyway, this new CPU should be somehtign to look forward to fro us tech junkies regardless of platform.
