These are great computers. But like the ENIAC and other computers
of long ago...."We need to try to make these big computers smaller."

IBM is working on putting a supercomputer on a chip...This is where we
need to go with all of this technology. Big is alright for today but tomorrow
smaller and faster should be the goal. And for goodness sake that is what
computer designers have been doing all along...I just believe that we need
to push a little harder for the smaller and faster side of it all.

Thanks for allowing me to comment....

Why is smaller/faster so important? Am I going to have to buy The White Album again?
