It will after Skymont comes out. Smaller than that and you risk electrons jumping across the gates on their own.

Pretty sure that's the size. Might be 7 and smaller; I forget.

People's understanding of Moore's law... 5 minutes at Wikipedia would've already gave you the general idea of it.

I'm not surprised most of you people use Macs. It "just works" so no point frying your brains trying to understand something you fail to even get the basics of.

So how about enlightening us where we've gone wrong.

I often think the future of the net is some form of grid-computing, where the internet-itself becomes one giant wireless computers as all connected devices share a portion of their processing power. As America has gone from an 'ownership economy', to a 'credit economy', and is now becoming an 'access economy', I think this will significantly impact the type of computers we use and how we use them in the future.

It may be that typical consumer-level computers are not getting better as quickly, but we're not spending as much on computers as we used to. That computing power is also being distributed, not just on multiple cores but on GPUs.

Anyway, integrated circuits aren't going to be the preferred method of computing forever. Once we reach their limit, we'll find something else. That's a long ways away, regardless.

2020 will be about the time 3D integrated circuits become standard and that will carry us into whatever new paradigm awaits in 2030 (optical or quantum computing).

Hey, you're right.

But don't clump us ALL into that. 90% of people couldn't care less about how computing worksand therefore don't know how it worksand that goes for both sides, Windows and Mac.

Xactly! Please do include the quoted moronic posts up front so that those of us fighting the good fight against the wave of lazy thought don't think you are with ... them .
