An analyst who was supposedly tight with people "who are in a position to know the details of SigmaTel's supply
chain"—SigmaTel would be the reigning king of Flash-memory player chipset manufacturers; their innards comprise an
unbelievable amount of digital audio devices—has been said to have confirmation that Apple is indeed going to rock on
that Flash player rumor, and that SigmaTel's supplying the
parts. Oh, and it'll be out before year's end. We'll see, we'll see.
