Apple legal strikes back?

The BusinessWeek article "Will This Be the Summer of Mac?" which reported earlier today that IBM was producing a 64-bit processor for Apple has been edited with the following statement:

IBM did not confirm it was building a chip specifically for Apple, but it does say its new PowerPC chip will work on Apple platforms.

While the article never mentioned the much rumored PowerPC 970 processor, its no "leap of faith" to assume that's what it was referring to.

Such a sudden and subtle correction surrounding an announcement as major as the 970 suggests that the notorious Apple Legal Department is at work here.

Apple Legal wildly forcing corrections? Let the crazy speculation begin!
