Apple Punishes ATI For Leaking The Cube?

JonMintz Real Losers (317 comments)

Let's face it, both Apple and ATi are going to lose some money over this situation.

Neither one is going out of business over it, but in the long run, cube buyers stuck with aging Rage 128 hardware are going to have to shell out the cash for a quality vido card. They won't all buy Radeons, but those who do shell out the cash for it will give ATi a bigger profit margin than they would get from the built-in card. And I doubt the change will seriously impact on the sales of the ubercool cube.

So the consumers are the losers.
And Jobs is just a big loser.
