APPle is going have INTEL hardware...

They will be members of the hardware-spyware club.

Looks like AMD systems might be the only freedom rigs out there...

Unless they jump on the same bandwagon.

How do you know that Apple wasn't coerced into choosing Intel over AMD.

Intel: Hello Steve, we heard you were looking for move off of PPC to x86, we like you to switch to Intel

Steve Jobs: No we are quite happy with PPC.

Intel: If you switched to us you'd no longer have to defend against the "Megahertz Myth"

Steve Jobs: We've defended against it pretty well

Intel: But IBM make a fool out of you by promising 3.0ghz G5 and not delievering

Steve: IBM sents us a road map

Intel: Here is a large chest of money

Steve: When can we switch?

I don't know if I ever heard of the term coerced used in reference to having been offered a large sum of cash.

Bribed? Yes!  Coerced?  No!

That's like saying you got threatened with a raise and a promotion, so you took it.

.....................

Besides, freakin' APPLE hardware has been nothin' but a boat anchor for years..

No my use of words we quite correct.

Coerced -  To force to act or think in a certain way by use of pressure, threats, or intimidation; compel

and if you still disagree with my choice of words, well then it's a euphemism.

The difference is the difference between  lightning and a lightning bug.

It is the difference between a threat and an incentive, two polar opposites.

Being offered money is only a threat when the mafia makes you an offer you can't refuse; otherwise, one is contorting the King's English.

Well according to AMD, Intel is kind of like the mafia.

I'll concede that point.

As you know, that type of business practise killed Rambus.
