Wired: Transmeta Locking with IBM

“On the heels of Transmeta’s long-awaited announcement about its
super-sleek, super-powerful Crusoe chip and what it means, IBM

“All I can say, and I shouldn’t even be saying this, is that
people here have seen a working prototype and it does what
Transmeta says it does,” the official said. “We are looking forward
to making this product available to the market.”

to remain silent. “I’ve seen it, it works, and I’ll be buying
the first machine that rolls off the assembly line featuring it,”
he said. “We are talking about a laptop that can run all day off a
single charge.
