Procesador
At the prior post we saw how the computers are every time more fast due to the increase of density of the transistors linked to its continuous size reduction. By one hand, the augment of transistor allow make more operations by second, and by the other hand, decrease its size allows enhance the clock frequency, but this second way of optimization was stalled at 2003. See why. Continue discovering "Ghz: Why are stalled? "

Gordon Moore’s photo
Gordon Moore, one of the Intel founders, published in a magazine of 1965 a "law" known as Moore's Law, that tells: "the number of transistor of a processor doubles every 24 month". Can be interpreted as: "every two years the processors are twice fast at the same price". That "law" it's satisfied every year, but, Will stop at sometime? Follow discovering "Moore's Law: In two years your new computer will be obsolete"

Supercomputer
Somedays ago I wrote about a chinesse supercomputer, the Tianhe-1A that was proclaimed the most fast on the world for achieve the most hight position of the Top 500 list. Now, an executive, provider of high performance technology, in the supercomputation conference of the 2010, celebrated in New Orleans, give me the reason saying that using together 100.000 smartphones with Android that number can be superated. There are a lot of people that is realizing that the Top 500 doesn't use the best way to measure the performance. Surprise yourself with the rest of "The list of Top 500 supercomputers is incorrect"

HD bigfoot together a HD of size of 3.5 inches
The hard drives increase its capacity every time more fast, its growing seems to be imparable, but the technology have its limits and nothing is infinite. When we will arrive to the limit of the hard disk? Fill your mind with "Magnetic Hard Drives: its end is near"

Photo of a sign on the beach
At present, we find a lot of beachs that has Wifi. Go to the beach to surf by Internet can make us seem a bit geek, although this is not the motive to quit. However, there are others that produces more serious problems. In this post I'm going to deepen in these. Don't left of read the rest of "Problems of Internet on the beach"
