"Transmeta is pretty much on course for a late 2000 IPO, having chosen Morgan Stanley Dean Witter and Deutsche Banc Alex Brown to set it all up, according to a source "familiar with the matter", cited by Bloomberg."
"By the end of the year, Transmeta should have a series of big-name notebook PC producing customers to shout about, and hopefully a heap of lesser known companies buying its appliance-oriented chips."
"IBM - and others' - reticence depends on what alternative power conservation and heat minimisation technology Intel, Transmeta's main rival, can come up with in the meantime. Certainly, Chipzilla is working hard on its SpeedStep technology, and Chimpzilla - aka AMD - has a similar system of its own."
