Well, it does make them stand out more. But it is annoying to read.

I'm stuck in the game, a battle scene where eventually 4 dragons appear and you have to break the 5 crystals. I make my party run through but one of them always dies. Ugh.
There's your error. Either you fight and win, or you make them sucumb to you.

Dragons, pesky beasts. There's a reason we've exterminated them in real life.

So why not move the entire consumer and lighter business users (the majority) over to ARM with the control that affords Apple over its hardware release cycles?
I REALLY doubt Apple could get developers to go with a second round of universal binaries, which means that there has to be a translations layer, resulting in a performance and therefore battery hit. So unless their ARM chips are borderline revolutionary, it will just end up in a massive confusing scenario for end users where some apps will run, some will not, and with only slightly better battery life compared to now.

I don't think Steam figures into a future where the consumer ecosystem does not include hardware capable of running desktop games. The vast majority of Apple customers are not using desktop computers now as it is. When it comes to games, mobile games are where the money is at for Apple.

Which is a bit crazy, considering GTAV just hit a staggering 6 billion dollars of revenue... It is the largest entertainment franchise ever!
Apple is really missing out on something, not having proper gaming Macs.

If you add the stuff about ARM Macs, together with the new Universal Binary rumors, and Timothy's love for the iPad, and shake it a little bit, you do end up with a scary FrankenPadBook rumor like that. ^
