Subject: Re: IBM Power4 ... what gives?

hey guys,

Macintouch is reporting this morning that the IBM Power4 is not destined to be a Mac processor. This word coming from an IBM engineering manager. Any comments on this?

-Joe Well Joe, this is a major case of one flawed source becoming the basis for dozens of Web site postings that sound authoritative. There are many reasons not to take this too seriously.


I could not help but laugh after reading Meaders responce.

    I like this one:

    [quote]First off, extremely few people at IBM would have any clue if Apple was planning on using a particular PowerPC chip -- including the engineers working on that or any other project at Big Blue. So the chances that the original source of the information is well-informed are not good to begin with.<hr></blockquote>

    I'm sure the engineers working on the project wouldn't realize it. Now who do I believe is well informed? Meader or IBM engineer who is working on the project?

    Hmmmmm. Decisions, decisions.
