Default Nanotube circuit could boost chip speeds

http://www.newscientist.com/article/...ip-speeds.html

I didnt read it all, because im looking for something else, but I happen to come across that. Enjoy!

Hmm, interesting. I'll have to pass this info to a friend of mine. She works on nanotechnology research at UCR.

Check this out too then..
http://www.newscientistspace.com/art...computers.html

Im doing my report on that artical.

Straight from this link

Hahah, I thought it was funny..

theoretical physics has always been one of my weaker subjects in high-school... lol

I doubt in our lifetime. And if it is, its going to be when were laying in a bed, with serveral tubes hooked up to us, and a family member saying pull the plug. Lol, we will never experice that quantum computer stuff, lol..

I don't know man, things advance so damn quick there is a possibility we might see this technology one day in our life times. Maybe only in its early stages but still i am confident we will see it.

Well, in therory processing power should double every 18 months.. So, I guess we will see. Ill make a bet with you. Lol, lets keep in contact till were say.. 60. And lets see whats happening then, and the loser pays up

haha sure! you're on! LOL i can just imagine sitting in my rocking chair (or whatever i may be doing that far into the future) typing on my non-nanotube technology computer and you come knockin on the door yelling "PAY UP OLD MAN!!! I'VE BROUGHT MY WALKER THIS TIME!" lol then i can try to shuffle away to avoid payment because i am a stingey old man who doesn't like to give up his squandered away money. lol...yeah

Wow, I find this kind of thing very interesting...for some reason

Yeah, we are coming to the limits of standard silicon processing, but at the moment, aren't we coping by using less nanometres like the latest 65 nano?

I'm sure we'll get to a point where we'll only be able to put processors together to get better speed, and getting more speed out of one only will be near impossible.

That seems a better prospect

"Until we understand quantum gravity, we're not going to be running Linux on a black hole."

I found that very interesing, haha, imagine since we have a black hole in the centre of our galaxy, having a super computer running on it?I haven't read the whole article yet to understand all of that.

That would seriously be interesting though. I mean, could it ever be possible to make a controlled black hole?

MIND BURN:

Though I don't understand really how chips of now work with digital information, so I'll have NO chance of understanding THAT stuff
