This has been relatively well known in the industry for a while. It
means they'll keep cranking more Geodes if you want to buy them, but
there will not be a "next" Geode chip. Maybe they'll come out with
another low-power cpu line sometime in the future, maybe not.

Intel and Via are the most interesting options right now in this
space, and both seem to be working on a "next" chip.

PCWorld and friends are for the consumer market, so they are about a
year behind on the news I'd say...
