Intel To Build Chips For Apple?

I guess the idea of Intel making chips for Apple isn't too far fetched. Intel has the capability and they already make all the processors for Apple computers anyway.

Manufacturing chips on behalf of other companies is a major departure for Intel, which for decades has based its business on using its manufacturing prowess to offer its own PC chips superior to rival products. As PC sales contract and Intel's fabrication plants operate at less than full capacity, the chipmaker sees an opportunity to fill idle production lines while earning new revenue.
