    found this article where AMD technology is used to make the discovery team faster/more aerodynamic... also, the bike lance is riding would be a sweet track ride

    Maybe Apple can successfully cripple another processor with bad software LOL

    Anyway, Lance rides a fixed gear at the beginning of each season for training too.

    Sorry to Hijack this thread but, any truth to the rumours that Apple will be releasing the Powerbook G5 soon?

    I haven't heard a word about it, but I'm dubious.

    Won't happen. Scuttlebutt has this as a large reason why Apple jumped the PPC ship: IBM can't get the power/heat down on a G5-class processor to make it suitable for portable use.

    It opens an intriguing set of possibilities to be sure. I haven't figured out if this is genius or madness.

    so my burning question is, are these just stock x86 systems or is this an agreement for intel to make a proprietary chipset/bios set for apple?

    Intel doesn't make the BIOS and Open Firmware is a Forth-based BIOS which is famously portable, so it's quite possible that they could go with an off-the-shelf system. On the other hand, one of the things that Jobs supposedly learned at NeXT (which produced a version of NeXTstep that would run on vanilla x86 boxes) was the power of "controlling the entire widget".

    I expect an x86 Mac will not be a plain ol' PC but at the same time it won't be so radically different that you won't be able to use it in some sort of cheap-o compatibility mode.

    powerbook g5 is already in the making pretty much. They have been working on it for almost 2 years. Underground secret mac info.
    It's all about commuting on the single speed & being nerdy.

    holy geekins!

    We went from Track to dis to bikes to lost pictures to a FRIGGIN apple discussion. I love this place. I feel like I should cut the track discussion (no offense go4broke44) and pass the rest off to the FOO forums!

    note > Anyone mentions "Tux, the linux mascot" and I trash the thread.
