[Interesting Aviation Off-Topic]
A photo from the Intel visitor center in Santa Clara, where they invoke Moore’s Law — the observation that, roughly translated, speed of computer processing chips doubles every two years, while the price moves inversely — toward air travel:

“In 1978, a commercial flight between New York and Paris cost $900 and took seven hours. If the principles of Moore’s Law had been applied to the airline industry the way they have to the semiconductor industry since 1978, that flight would now cost about a penny and take less than one second.”

  1. OK – speed and cost is fine, but what about reliability? BSoD occuring every day? I think ppl would choose a car or ship instead of a place.
