GIGAFLOP: REVOLUTIONIZE CHIP HARDWARE

This has the potential to disrupt many aspects of society and politics.

FPF - 18-02-2005 - Because we're all reading this on a computer, it's good to know what is in store for the nearby future: will we have a mini-computer with global GPS connections in our implanted Gflop-chips?

By the nanosecond confirming the fact that we'll still be able to run, but never again will be able to hide? Anywhere on earth? Because of the Nano-eID-chip, with the last bits of privacy 'Giga-flopped'?

Imagine your child, grandma etc. being lost! You want security don't you? And defend your child(ren) against pornography etc on Internet? That's why Internet in the nearby future will only be admittible by eID: proving one 'deserves to be allowed to enter'. A scaring thought: who will decide the criteria: you're for or against us?

While the two chip behemoths, Intel and AMD were busy staring each other down, some of the world's largest and most successful electronics conglomerates joined forces to really revolutionize chip hardware.

The electronics giants in question are Sony, Toshiba and IBM, and it looks like their brainchild is one of the most impressive breakthroughs in computing, since Bill Gates stole DOS from Xerox.

Last week, the three proud parents unveiled their offspring, the CellProcessor, which they describe as a “super computer on a chip.”

After four years of development, the Cell is finally ready to make its way into everything from laptops and game consoles to high-definition televisions and cell phones.

One of the most impressive aspects of the Cell, is that it can run at 256 Gflops at 4 GHz. A Gflop, or gigaflop, is a measure of simultaneous floating point calculations.

Each gigaflop represents one billion simultaneous calculations:

That's about 100,000 times faster than a Pentium I. It required four years of work and billions of yen from three of the most technologically advanced powerhouses to complete.

NANOTECHNOLOGY, THREAT OR PROMISE?

Combine the above potential with nanotechnology, and one sees an enormous high-tech ''Mene Tekel'' - written by Laser rays for sure - on all possible walls, but now inside your home, and maybe in your head.

Molecular nanotechnology (MNT) will be a significant
breakthrough, comparable perhaps to the Industrial
Revolution - but compressed into a few years.*

A giant electronic and controlling global Octopus, able and willing - and for better or worse - to intrude in- and influence all lives on a grand and daily scale, where only fantasy sets the limits.

BUT: WHO SETS THE LIMITS FOR WHOM?

This has the potential to disrupt many aspects of society and politics.

The power of the technology may cause two competing nations to enter a disruptive and unstable arms race. Weapons and surveillance devices could be made small, cheap, powerful, and very numerous. Cheap manufacturing and duplication of designs could lead to economic upheaval. [enditem]
