Moore's Law

  1. Dec 12, 2012 #1
    says that computing power at an economic price roughly doubles every year.

    this relies on the fact that we can stuff more transistors into smaller spaces.

    we wont reach quantum limitations until atleast 50 years.

    where will we (humans) be by than?

    Where will we be?

    Right here waiting for our computers to boot up.
