Apple, Intel, and the Future of the PowerPC

The Apple Worldwide Developer Conference is coming up this Monday, and apparently one of the big announcements will be Apple's switch to Intel chips.

It's pretty big news, especially if by switching to Intel they really do mean the x86 platform. The Mac rumor mills propose another scenario though: maybe Intel will be producing a PPC chip after licensing the technology from IBM.

update Just noticed Slashdot rolled the announcement out...or pointed to that C|Net article rather.
