The buzz that began last Monday among developers, bloggers, analysts and Apple followers trying to guess Steve Jobs's true designs has not let up. After all, Jobs is a legend in no small part because he defied the monster combination that is Wintel, as the digerati call the Windows and Intel alliance, and lived to talk about it. So what could a Macintel alliance possibly hope to accomplish? Potentially, quite a lot.

I think that Mr Jobs has finally realized three things:
1. It is possible to succeed as a software company (consider Microsoft, Oracle and Adobe).
2. Apple will never be able to produce Macs at the same price range of the wintels (Dell is now selling a usable PC and Monitor for only $299).
3. The Apple brand is much more profitable than the Mac product (consider iPod and iTunes).
Therefore, it is safe to assume that Apple is transitioning into a different company: either a software company or a consumer electronics company!

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.
