Job, Newsweek and 2003
Newsweek reports on Steve Jobs' keynote from last week, and interviews Jobs who indicates a promising year:
- In an interview with NEWSWEEK after the speech, Jobs was ebullient, promising that this was only the opening salvo in a year of new-product introductions.
All rumor-eyes remain focused on IBM's Power 970 chip this year. IBM's new processor was announced in October 2002 by IBM. The new chip promises to provide 32-bit PowerPC as well as Altivec compatibility.
Second half of 2003 is when volume production is expected per IBM.
