Aiii! My brain! Too much info!




Interesting article, though!
I'd like to see a similar article describing how the future plans for processors will/could change - any how it will impact the performance...

Am I the only one who isn't watching BB2004?

Hehe, some more cool info about Sun's new "proximity communication". How about that?! Copper will be a thing of the past

Inter CPU communication with radio waves.. Kind of neat.
