Apple Plans to Make its own Chips as Buys into Chip Fabrication Plant
Apple has entered the fabrication industry and is all ready to begin production of its own CPUs. The whole thing was news and it still remains as if hidden behind a darkened glass. Rumors have it that the companywith which Apple is in cahoots is the Taiwanese UMC. Of course, the report that Apple was going to let go of Intel has turned out to be nothing but bosh and tosh. However, according to AppleInsider, it has shifted back to Nvidia. The fact that Apple has been lent access to a design team by UMC is the latest scoop. The whole enterprise at Apple will be handled by Bob Mansfield. According to Tim Cook, Apple has semiconductors on its mind.
Meanwhile, Samsung remains the original provider of Apple’s chips. But for once Apple is trying to take its supply chain into its own hands. Intel, IBM, Global Foundries and TSMC are unable to meet the demands of Apple. Therefore the conglomerate has finally decided to go solo. It will require some degree of an independent streak in Apple. But Apple already has this in scads. It got it from the Think Different philosophy of Steve Jobs. Apple has always stood out from the rest in a world of uniformity, mediocrity and conformity. That is the crucial quality that will see it through in the long run.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
