Some time ago Apple purchased a company by the name of P A Semi.  This company was in the market of making their very own microchips and now the newest Apple Tablet rumors are saying a new chipset of their own will be at the heart of the new device.  According to Northeast Securities analyst Ashok Kumar, Apple chose to do away with Intel for its tablet and instead use a chipset of their very own design.  The rumor would make the purchase of P A Semi make sense instead of just picking them up for their talent.  Apple has a tendency of wanting o control every little aspect of their components as much as they can.  If this rumor turns out to be true, lets hope they don’t do away with Intel altogether and go back to the days of a PowerPC-like era.
