Intel Inside

英特尔芯片

Apple's innovations were more than skin-deep.

苹果公司的创新并非流于表面。
Since 1994 it had been using a microprocessor, called the PowerPC, that was made by a partnership of IBM and Motorola.
1994年起,该公司就一直在使用PowerPC芯片,该微处理器由IBM和摩托罗拉联合生产。
For a few years it was faster than Intel's chips, an advantage that Apple touted in humorous commercials.
在当时几年的时间里,该芯片比英特尔公司生产的芯片更快,苹果公司曾在自己的幽默广告中吹捧过这一点。
By the time of Jobs's return, however, Motorola had fallen behind in producing new versions of the chip.
然而,当乔布斯重回苹果时,摩托罗拉在生产新版本芯片方面已开始落后。
This provoked a fight between Jobs and Motorola's CEO Chris Galvin.
这引发了乔布斯和摩托罗拉CEO克里斯·高尔文的争吵。

he suggested to Galvin that he might consider making an exception for Motorola's clone, the StarMax Mac,

The Motorola StarMax was canceled,
