As with any company that is in the progress of developing new technology for release you always get information being leaked out to the general press by employees and Apple is no different.
I mean just look at all the rumours floating around about a new iphone or type of netbook being released in June and I'm sure if put end to end they would circle the world a few times. This is why possibly one of the reasons Apple are now looking to hire people to develop their own chips.News from the Wall Street Journal is that they are hiring big names from the semiconductor industry to help them design new processors that will enable faster iphones and at the same time reduce power consumption. They have recently hired Raja Koduri and Bob Drebin formally of AMD. The idea of keeping everything in-house sounds a really good idea and tie that in with being able to keep a lid on rumours and the possibility of a lucrative licensing model if hey come up with something good then i see the Apple money making train carrying on down the tracks for a long time to come.
