LASER CHIPS!

John Moe Jul 27, 2010

Not from Frito-Lay, tragically, but from Intel. They say they’ve built a new chip that uses lasers instead of electronic signals and it can download a high-def movie in one second. As someone who spent days trying to load Inglourious Basterds on an iPad, I welcome this technology.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
