Cocoa:This year, MacIntel, next year, back to PowerPC

IBM's Power6 gets help with math, multimedia
SAN JOSE, Calif.--IBM's forthcoming Power6 processor can count to 10.
That may not sound like anything special for a processor whose clock ticks at a rate approaching 5 billion times each second. But Power6 can count to 10--and perform numerous other mathematical operations--with the decimal digits 0 through 9 rather than the binary digits of 0 and 1 used by conventional computers.

I'm for it. Each year, Apple chooses the best CPU available and builds the most amazing machines possible.
