We really are approaching the upper limits of Moore's Law, in the truest sense. I wonder what we're going to do when we get there :p

Carbon nanotubes will be the next paradigm IMO - http://www.technolog...ng/24236/page1/ This will continue Moore's Law for some time to come.

And if not tubes as such, it'll be graphene sheets. Nanotube computers would be awesome, though, if only to fulfill that old adage 'The internet is a series of tubes'...

This amount of awesome cannot be from concentrate.

How many shocks can it take before it breaks?

Unless you manage to get it to vibrate at a resonating frequency, methinks the structures are so small they'll be no more or less vulnerable than the ones on current CPUs?

I thought Carbon nano-tubes were super-strong?

Why are they starting at 22nm and not slightly smaller?
I'm a business man, that's all you need to know about me.

22nm is the absolute smallest they can do at the moment with current technology.

14nm should arrive in 2013 and 10nm in 2015 -
