Re: [NTLK] Concerning Apple's Switch to Intel Chips...

As an aside about all this China / anti-China ... dare I say it "crap!"

Talk about nuts, there are whole pages of posts now dedicated to
talking about China ... China is good, China is bad, you aren't from
China, I am from China, my dog's cousin twice removed, previous
owner's, boss's uncle was or wasn't from China, liked or didn't like

Never mind this was all generated by one guy's short aside asking
*IF* IBM had moved any PPC work to China. His post wasn't short
either, he said a lot of things, a lot of on-topic (as much as an
already off-topic post can be on-topic). But we don't talk about
those, we argue about China?

Seriously? Are we all nuts? Go have a beer, or a Coke, or a Pepsi, or
whatever they drink where you are, and go schedule yourself some time
for mental relaxation on your favorite PDA.

Cause ya know what? Besides IBM spending billions of dollars to build
the Fishkill, NY plant to fabricate the PPC 970 (G5) ... this
conversation is all a bit insane.
