    So, when I'm using my vacuum cleaner of the future, it'll suddenly have a mind of its own, burst out the door and suck up the neighbour's cat?

    As there is no water involved in the production process, I guess you meant for the title to read "au naturel", as opposed to "eau naturelle" which means natural water (spring water) ?

    Correct spelling/syntax would be "goes au Naturel" I spose though it still doesn't exactly make sense

    i give a few years before the current shrink process just gets to small, i think that was said when we were at 900mhz and the production of 1GHz+ chips was impossible! lol

    well we all know the future of computing and thats deadicated cores for certain jobs.

    love to have a quad core, with software that can make use of the cores. i.e multi core gaming.

    "au naturel" would make sense, but now it says "IBM goes natural water"

    Well the BBC article says that IBM expects to have chips in 2009, then IBM will probably give this tech to AMD... how long it will take AMD to make chips with this tech I have no idea...

    And naturally we know that the computer industry never have delayed products and their predictions are always precise :wallbash:

    This is pretty funny coming from a company that has not gotten 65 NM out the door yet. I guess when you are huge as IBM is you can stand the heat that another huge corporation like Microsoft must be giving IBM for the last 6 months over the continuing saga of the Tricore PowerPC 90 NM that was supposed to be shrunk already. All I got to say though is IBM is the King of hype first it was SOI , then High-K metal gate, Nano-tubes and now what looks like foam rubber. LOL, it does look like a sleep easy mattress
