Having been part of the foundation of Apple (literally), Steve Wozniak remains an influential force. Nonetheless, we wonder if his words can still inspire Apple's future direction as he calls out for another, bigger iPhone model to join iPhone 5.
We've been hearing tantalizing rumors about a secret romance between Apple and graphics chip maker Information Technologies since April of 2008, possibly involving the making of a custom graphics chip for the iPhone and iPod touch line, but nothing conclusive was ever reported. It just so happens that today that very same graphics chip maker has announced a new high-end chip to their existing SGX series of components, the same line Apple puts in their iPhones and iPod touches.
All the talk about the Apple tablet has the CES crowd a little tablet-happy, so it makes sense people would be so excited about NVIDIA announcing a new version of the Tegra graphics chip destined for five tablet computers from five different manufacturers. The blazing-fast new chip was unveiled earlier today by CEO Jen-Hsun Huang at a press conference in Las Vegas, and boasts power and speed that leaves the iPhone 3GS in the dust.
