2 Millions A Head
I’m not talking about this android head (Picture taken and courtesy of www.androidworld.com), but Apple recent acquisition of P.A.Semi. P.A.Semi as I wrote a couple times, is the company that designed low power, PWRficient, 64-bit PowerPC processor, that “supposed to” acquired by Apple before Apple making a leap to Intel platform.

The acquisition worth 278 millions US dollars rise some questions, does Apple finally make another move to PowerPC *at least for their volume winning iPod and iPhone. If Apple can supply their own chip instead of buying it from another supplier, they can save millions bucks. It also rise question on how Apple relationship with its new partner like Intel.

Apple officially said that the acquisitions is have nothing to do with their partnership with Intel. They happy enough (of course by Intel giving the volume discount) with their partnership. What Apple want (which is suspicious) is P.A. Semi 15 engineers to design their next product. How a company can maintain a resources to stay onboard is another trivial task.

What ever it is let’s hope it’s for a better. A next generation Mac based on non linear solutions not likely seen in today’s offering, a Mac full of parallels processing and harness the GPU instead of CPU will coming next year with the release of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

For sure what ever it is, a 2 millions a head acquisition surely a sweet deal. *Looking forward for an offering from Apple :)) What do you say Steve πŸ˜€

    Adinoto Inc, has acquired CPP and started production of low cost Mek.
    In order not to breach Apple’s trademark, the product will be called Makin-Joss preinstalled with OSX Kucing Garong.
