    The author is clearly selling his opinion of "The Switch," but the facts stated carry at least some weight.

    I also noticed that he shares my opinion that Apple is now a toy company (in so many words). :D

    Anyways, it's an interesting read.

    Couldn't the argument be that all computers are toys for aficianados just like cars? They're a tool to laymen, yes, but toys nonetheless.

    So other than ultra fast gaming consules, where will these chips go?

    I wish I could keep up with news like I did before I got my stupid job. I thought part of the reason for the switch was an availablity problem. the new PPC chip offerings look good, but if they can only crank out 30 a year, then it doesn't matter.
