"During a conversation with Germany's Macwelt magazine at this week's Apple Expo here, Schiller also quashed speculation that Apple will offer a Windows version of its Sherlock Internet search technology and addressed other issues, including Mac OS 9 upgrade pricing and the company's rumored plans to create its own Internet portal site."

"According to Schiller, IBM's decision to release a PowerPC motherboard design free of charge to third-party hardware developers was motivated by the chip maker's desire to increase the RISC processor's penetration into the Linux market.
