IBM didn't know
... until Friday before WWDC. About Apple's move to intel. According to information we gathered, IBM's managers tried to call Steve Jobs after the press went wild with the rumours, but Steve didn't return the calls. Apparently, IBM wanted more money from Apple to drive the evolution of the PowerPC. Sony wanted to get Apple on board of the Cell processor, but that processor has an even worse performance/watt ratio than the PowerPC - according to Apple.
