PlayStation 3 processor could support Mac OS X Tiger

It's unclear at the moment exactly what this will mean for Mac or PlayStation 3 users. Sony's Cell processor is a derivative of IBM's PowerPC chip used by Apple in its personal computers.

I love rumor mills. Especially the far out bizarre claims. I would think that Sony would put a Linux distro on the PS3, since it already has one for the PS2. But thats just me. But whatever. Anything could happen. I mean Apple switched to Intel chips and finally after 21 years released a multi-button mouse.

No, it's not, you AppleInsider morons. It means nothing whatsoever.

There's nothing it could possibly mean. What do these people think it could mean? Running Mac OS X on an PS3? The PPC-derived CPU is about the only thing a PS3 has common with a current Mac. Easier porting of PS3 games to Macs? Nah, the APIs are entirely different.
