MacRumors has a nice history of the Apple-to-Intel rumor history. These rumors have been going around since 2000, but, like I mentioned before, they never have gotten so high in “hierarchy of rumor sources.” My bet is what happened is Jobs got real pissed that IBM is saving all its 3.2 Ghz chips for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 (each one has 3 3.2 Ghz chips) while the Powermac line is stuck at 2.7 Ghz. So, since IBM isn’t putting out for Apple, Jobs decided to dump IBM. This seems like something Jobs would do. Of course, these rumors could be all wrong . . .
