See, Apple? You are very lucky to have Intel with you, stop doing stupid things like SUING...

Apple doesn't need Intel rather Intel needs Apple.

Neither company needs the other but they could both possibly benefit from each other. Not every story has a hero.

In another year or 2 apple will be very needy...unless they stop screwing with their partners and stop trying to patent the universe for products they will most likely never make.

The only thing apple needs is real competition.

Intel is a behemoth...but why do they lag so much in terms of smartphone/ tablet technology? with their power and resources they couldve easily topped the mobile arena.

I'd be curious to see a quad core processor from them in a Nexus Device.

Will that mean that they'll use two technologies then?
Cause TSMC uses 28nm, while Intel uses 32nm and 22nm... I wonder which one will they use in the new chip, cause the 10% getting it can end up being either a bit unlucky or extremelly lucky :D

Since they are making the chips for Apple, and not their own products, I would have to assume they would use whatever Apple ask for.

what wait... so the next gen of iPad will use x86 architecture?

It doesn't change the fact..Apple always get sliced.....I think if Apple work with Intel doesn't make any growth of Apple,Apple will find other company like Nvidia Tegra cause Apple just want to race in Gigahert with Samsung and Motorola.....
