Intel forms Apple group
Industry analysts and others have confirmed that according to an eWEEK report. "This group, formed in the wake of Apple Computer Inc.'s decision to base its next generation of Macintosh computers on Intel processors, is comprised of engineers and sales staff. Intel has similar groups for other large clients such as Lenovo and Hewlett-Packard. Specifics on the Apple group are sparse, however. Details are considered confidential internal information, said Intel representative Tom Beerman. He also noted that although the official Apple group is new, Intel has had 'skunkwork' operations over the years to demonstrate technologies to potential customer Apple."
