  1. The first plastic computer processor Silicon may underpin the computers that surround us, but the rigid inflexibility of the semiconductor means it cannot reach everywhere. The first computer processor and memory chips made out of plastic semiconductors suggest that, someday, nowhere will be out of bounds for computer power. Technology Review

    "The first plastic computer processor" Was completely surprised when I read the article amazing.

    I loved "CEO Friday: Why we don?t hire .NET programmers".

    In regards to the physics processing - maybe because it takes more effort to implement on shitty console ports?

    The people in the .net programmer post are simply liars, if not dreamers. The guy next door has his masters in computer science and has been trying for 2 years to get a job. Start ups? What start ups? Show him where they are. As for programmers programming "since they were 5 years old" I know a 5 year old, and he can't even wipe his own butt.

    "AMD: Game developers not exactly interested in hardware-accelerated physics" I find it a bit of an ironic state since AMD doesn't have a physics engine on the cards:p.
