Apple to open research lab

Apple plans to Carnegie Mellon University's campus in Oakland, joining Intel's existing labs at the same site, according to a report in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. The announcement comes only a few months after the companies announced that Apple will transition Macs to Intel chips over the next two years. "Apple plans to open a research facility at CMU's Collaborative Innovation Center.... The Apple facility combined with other tenants at the center is expected to create at least 200 new jobs. The Apple facility will share the top floor of the four-story building with Intel's existing Intel Research Pittsburgh unit, a research laboratory that employs 17 people.... Plans are for researchers from Apple and Intel in the new building to discuss the possibility of cooperating or working on joint projects."

    No big suprise

    Apple got a lot from CMU, it's time to give something back. Apple not only got Mach from them they got Avi.

    It's also painfully obvious that the Intel move has to do with more than just chips. Apple spent too much time and money on the PPC to just abandon it for a chip with similar performance. We can all understand that Jobs is a bit of a corporate b****, but he's not stupid; Intel and Apple probably have something big planed.

    Looking forward to it

    I'm speculating that Apple will be trying to figure out how to make Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard take full advantage of the multicore chips like Tukwila that Intel has in the pipeline in that lab. They may also try to help Intel design custom chips without which Mac OS X will not run thus preventing Dells and other PCs from coming out with unauthorized Macintel clones.
