Intel VP: Jobs 'has made wrong CPU choice for 20 years'

August 5 - 14:25 EDT Intel's senior VP and chief technology officer Pat Gelsinger was recently asked in a interview by the Edmonton Journal if he thought Apple CEO Steve Jobs made the right chip decision, choosing IBM for the G5 processor. He responded, "I think Steve Jobs has made the wrong CPU choice for 20 years, he just added a few more years to the life of his bad decisions. Steve's not an illogical guy, he's passionate and opinionated about the directions he wants is a poor path for the company as well as a poor path for the users."

Well if you don't speak English, you might understand that article better :D There are a lot of typos and the grammar isn't too shabby either.

I think Intel is expressing fear in this article. Maybe Apple and IBM have threatened companies like Intel with the new G5 chip. Although Intel loves the "Horizontal" approach when running the company into the future, where Apple has taken the "Vertical" approach and going places.

of course the intel exec said that. saying anything else would be admitting that ibm makes better chips than intel. it's not aboot steve, apple, or ibm. it's aboot his company loyalty.
