David K Every Responds to Ars' 'Hannibal' Stokes
Kelly McNeill writes "Earlier this week, Ars Technica's Jon "Hannibal" Stokes published an article which claimed to show the *real* reason why Apple went Intel. In his article, 'Hannibal' says that part of the reason for IBM and Apple's failed business relationship was that Apple tried to pull 'stunts' to get more out of IBM than they were entitled. Some are saying that the Ars article can be summarized as, 'Macintosh is the past. iPod is the future.' As you can imagine, people took issue with Hannibal's piece and many felt that his insider sources were far off the mark. Popular technology journalst, David K. Every submitted the following editorial to osOpinion/osViews, which corrects the mistakes and assumptions made by Mr. Stokes."
