IBM's Teeny Tiny Transistors

Jack Uldrich: These super-tiny, super-powerful, next-generation carbon nanotube-based chips will be able to go places that they have never gone before --like inside our walls, clothing, and possibly even our bodies. And that, in turn, is likely to raise the little hairs on the backs of the necks of civil libertarians, bioethicists, and maybe even average citizens, in genuine concern over where this next iteration of the computer revolution is truly headed.
