The PowerS hasn't yet arrived in an Apple machine, despite the similarly named PowerPC G5, the Mac's latest, greatest CPU. Apple's CS is actually based on the Power4 -- except with a single core, a smaller die, less heat, and lower power consumption. In other words, the PowerPC incarnation of the Power architecture is optimized for smaller machines. And that plan seems to be working better than ever: Apple sold 836,000 PowerPC laptop, desktop, and server systems in its fourth fiscal quarter of 2004.

Four years ago I placed my bet on PowerPC as the No. 1 horse http://www.ncolug.org/ppc.htm Considering that SoC technology has *enabled* combined volumes in the hundreds of millions at very competitive prices by converging game and set-top boxes and desktop Linux devices, I am more confident then ever that my PowerPC horse will win this race.

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
