    I think the article is a bunch of crap. There was this same speculation just before the G5 systems were released. There is already a ton of decent discussion from people who understand computer hardware at Arstechnica.com.

    Main points brought up over and over, elsewhere:
    Moving to x86 is not the non-trivial process some would have one believe.
    Cnet article isn’t specific. This could be a different chip architecture for a different product other than Macintosh.
    Intel may have been contracted to do manufacturing of PPC cores.
    Any processor move would cause deep hurting if said chip doesn’t include AltaVec. (Much of the OS and Apps take advantage of this tech) Think adding an AltaVec to an x86 core is a walk in the park?
    There are no sources in the article. It’s lazy, terrible journalism; Jason Blair style.

    Hmmmm. I’ll have to look at those things when I get back to work Monday. I don’t have the files here at home. Thanks for the help.

    This is a sample of the animation in queation. It ends abruptly, but in reality, pads out to :15.

    Oh, a CODEC. That’s different. I thought you were talking about CODACs.

    QT7 H.264? I thought you were dealing with DV.

    What’s a CODAC?

    Well, hold on there skippy… Today is the day that some rumor sites predicted would be the unveiling of the said “new power macs” but please do not be disappointed if today is not the day, nor if the upgrades are up to expectations. They are only rumor sites after all.

    Now, truth be told, I would be completely giddy if we broke 3Ghz. The rumors indicate that this won’t happen, but you never know what this means. Is Apple fueling the rumor mill with low expectations to make the blessed event all that more explosive? Or are the rumors just that? I’ve got a dual 2Ghz that I bought in `03. I’m not too worried about it. I am still trying to sell the older G4 system. 🙁

    The idea is that the two grouped objects are still editable. In theory, you could not expand anything and then use the pull-down to expand everything as a last step. Until then, you can tweak to your heart’s content.

    I don’t use Illustrator in this way. Often I need that Pathfinder expanded “result” to cut something else out. I do a lot of logo design, but I’m probably not the most efficient Illustrator user as I am self taught and only crack the manual when I run into a roadblock.
