Intel Research Chip Advances 'Era Of Tera' 80-Core Programmable Processor First to Deliver Teraflop Performance with Remarkable Energy-Efficiency SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 11, 2007 - Intel Corporation researchers have developed the world's first programmable processor that delivers supercomputer-like performance from a single, 80-core chip not much larger than the size of a finger nail while using less electricity than most of today's home appliances. This is the result of the company's innovative 'Tera-scale computing' research aimed at delivering Teraflop -- or trillions of calculations per second --performance for future PCs and servers. Technical details of the... Read more...
This one definitely borders on the freaky side for sure. Viruses used to build electronic structures? Hello?  Maybe we can all just skip the flu shots this year and head on over to MIT for a crash course in electrophysics?  In some sort of sick and twisted way, that runny nose you're fending off could possibly power your iPod... "By manipulating a few genes inside these viruses, the team was able to coax the organisms to grow and self-assemble into a functional electronic device. The goal of the work, led by MIT Professors Angela Belcher, Paula Hammond and Yet-Ming Chiang, is to create batteries that cram as much electrical energy into as small or lightweight a package as possible....

Technology shows great promise but still under long term research DailyTech reports -- "Researchers at the University of Central Florida announced this week that they have developed a way to store massive amounts of data onto a disc roughly the size of a typical DVD. This sounds like another competitive format to Blu-ray or HD-DVD, but in fact, the new technology can store thousands of times that of a DVD." I remember seeing my first terabyte storage device -- massive thing about the size of a small apartment at the Los Alamos Research Labs, and that was less than ten years ago, and only had a 3 terabyte capacity.
