Cringely is off his rocker on the Apple Intel merger

Thursday, June 9th, 2005

The funny thing about Bob Cringely is that while he is one heck of a computer historian and is often spot on with his analysis; he’s just as prone to delving out flights of the imagination and repackaging them as educated-guesstimations. In his
