    That's great news - even if I really don't know most of what's happenning there technically-speaking! It's good to see Intel becoming more competitive on the R & D front if only because it will raise the bar for AMD and more importantly; IBM! :)

    I'd have to say that was one of the funniest things I've read on these forums so far.

    Ha!

    What good is that when it enters and exits my computer at the speed of molasses?

    Well, not really because I'm fortunate enough to have cable. But still, comparatively speaking cable is still pretty slow.

    When I can download a 2 hour movie in less than 1 minute, then I'll know that cable has truly arrived ;)
