Now THAT would be ironic….

The Register speculates that IBM might get into some relationship with Apple following IBM’s sale of its PC unit to Lenovo (fomerly Legend). Makes sense, though, with IBM promoting Open Source platforms and wanting access to the lifestyle market – given IBM’s image transitioning from Big Brother to Cool Dude the since the mid-90s, Apple’s image might actually be enhanced by this. IBM lent corporate legitimacy to the PC when it entered the business – it might do the same to Apple.
