TUAW: Dan Gillmor has been asking an interesting question: will apple sue the Wall Street Journal over the Intel leak the way they sued the bloggers in Apple v. Does? The WSJ doesn’t seem to think so; they’re patting themselves on the back over Jobs’ reference to them as the end of his keynote. Gillmor doesn’t seem to think so, either, and neither do I. Letting the WSJ off the hook is a way to reinforce the legitimacy of “old media” reporting over “new media” blogging. This is also probably the reason he singled out the WSJ in his talk, even though c|net also broke the story. For a company that wants to be your internet and digital hub, Apple can be pretty hidebound.
Dan Gilmore: By the way, I suspect that Jobs deliberately cited the Journal, not the online news organization. His company is at war with online publications about revealing “trade secrets” — essentially anything Apple wants journalists not to report about. To give a credible news organization like CNet credit might undermine his attacks on Web journalism as a genre.

Apple on Intel: Take a deep breath, let it out ? Wow ! ^_^ ! a sneak peek into the wild wild, wooly ride that Steve Job’s has held Apple back from for years. At WWDC 2005 Apple has unleashed to developers their next WOMD (Weapon of Mass Domination) machines with OS X running on the outside, but Intel on the Inside! – Oversized cases with mini-motherboards, onboard (Intel) GMA 900 graphics chips, DVI risers and a phat PCIe bus to boot. But developers are humming about way more than just the hardware – Steve Job’s genius travels far back into the past when he imagined a byte code tapestry that could be woven to run on any chip architecture…

Crazy like a fox, and the fox is in the proverbial henhouse. If you take the latest Intel announcement at face value, the roadmap for Intel chips is better suited to Apple future products. Well, what are those products? Apple does not like to talk about future products, but we sure do. Read on…
