I suspect this "report" comes from a SEC filing showing that Apple  
needs to cover their buns on warranty service of current production  
G4 hardware that's covered under AppleCare thru the end of 2008, and  
that Freescale will supply the chips on demand with no concrete  
delivery time specified. Nor is Apple committed to even buying the  
chips.  End of story.
