Intel adds Apple developer sessions

Intel invites Apple to IDF

Intel has placed two Apple sessions at the head of its "Featured Sessions" list for the upcoming Intel Developer Forum. Columnist Tom Yager of InfoWorld believes that at least a little endorsement is overdue. "After all, among first tier OEMs in the U.S., Apple is the only one remaining that buys CPUs exclusively from Intel. That deserves more than a cupcake. Intel should greet Steve Jobs' visits to the Intel campus by scattering rose petals before him." Apple CEO Steve Jobs and the company's marketing team have repeatedly compared PowerPC systems to the new Intel-based Macs, showing obvious speed differences even between six-month-old G5 systems. Jobs also "brought Apple to the brink of meltdown" to ship its Intel Macs ahead of schedule, incorporated the Core Duo CPU into new Macs following its debut, and created a broad market with Intel notebook OEMs for the Core Duo chip. Apple's Featured Sessions at the Intel Developer Forum are Intel's way of saying "thanks," according to Yager.
