Reader David Ferrand writes: “I was watching the ScreenSavers on TechTV tonight and Leo Laporte on location at Comdex said that the word on the floor is that AMD and Apple Computer are about to announce an agreement to use AMD chips in Macs. Perhaps as soon as tomorrow. Did anyone else catch that report?”

We’re forced to resort to the usual skepticism — why, for instance, is the world outside the Mac community so quick to forget the challenges of rewriting software a processor switch would cause? That is, unless AMD is now going to engineer and manufacture PowerPCs. Now THAT would speed up this news week. Discuss.
