PowerPC For Google PC !
"IBM's Microelectronics division, which makes and sells chips as well as intellectual property, had a 23 per cent sales increase in Q2."
Now that ARM is attacking Intel from below, IBM should team up with Google to provide a PC using the POWER architecture. IBM should let Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co produce the entry-level chips (upt to 2 GHz) and make the high-end stuff (2-4GHz) in their own fabs.
Continuing development solely for AIX, AS/400 and gaming does not proide the revenue streams the need.
