This is a discussion on You know you are an INTJ when... within the INTJ Forum - The Scientists forums, part of the NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects category; Originally Posted by Sanskrit And how old and well developed is this technology again? Oh yes, brand new so we ...
But as of January, the latest articles I have found (I haven't looked too hard) Molybdenite is still in the theoretical stage, whereas graphene is already in the prototyping stage.
Graphene has only recently been discovered, and this application is barely two years since it's inception, so it's only now begging to be implemented. There is still the issue of greed, and companies may choose to implement it as slowly as possible to get their money from gradual upgrades.
A 5ghz processor will shock the masses just as much as a 100ghz.
If they really truly implemented the tech at full capability, we would have multi cores running at 30ghz each. Ouch.
Aside from that, they would also be afraid of the damage to back stock, usually a new processor prompts people to buy the older ones for cheaper. If the next big processor was a full order of magnitude better, that would damage sales of previous tech.
Back on topic (sort of, ):
You know you are an INTJ if you find the story of how graphene was first harvested, and the Nobel prize that came along with it, to be hysterical.
The 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics - Press Release
Maybe it's just me, but scotch tape and a pencil = one million dollar Nobel prize. Lol.
EDIT: Actually I think it's barely a year since inception, I overestimated how long ago I read the first article.
On so many levels. If I list them all, I'm bound to miss one...
You guys (and gals) ever retreat back to your respective fortress of solitude when you feel emotions kicking in? Then find once you are alone, the rising emotions evaporate?
It strikes me as ironic, seeing that in the one place where I should be able to express emotions freely, I cannot because they go away.
Regarding graphene based transistor.
I think you shouldn't get your hopes up so fast. This technology might become a standard one day, but there are still a huge volume of issues to overcome.
At 100GHz, with such low bandgap voltage you will face massive noise issues. Plus it is an entire new field that will open before us.
For the moment, it is still basic material/metal/fundamental research.
First development won't happen before 5 years, and don't think it will reach any kind of serie production before at least 10.
Well, as soon as I start using it, I will let you know, but for the moment, I still have to jump from 65nm to 22nm.
Well, the tech industry isn't like the FDA and all the amazing medical technology coming out today that won't see any use for at least two decades. So one can dream.
Personally I see an order of magnitude increase in nearly every field over the next five years which should lead to a real age of the robot. But of course the economy issues alone could prolong that. Even so, the tech industry has continued to see the most growth.
I find myself mimicking the emotions of others in intense emotional situations without trying. Not sure why I do that - I try to stop but half the time I don't even realize that I do it until after I do it.
I found something interesting, however, in that whenever I roleplay (text-based) I actually DO feel a full range of emotions. It's a good deal of the reason why I love to RP so much because it allows me to feel/experience that which I don't really have access to in real life.
I think it has something to do with the technical aspect of it. Bad writing doesn't invoke any emotion but good writing does - the detail, the description, the suspense. It's more about the words and how they impact the scene than the event itself, a lot of the time. I suppose, in this way I can invoke emotion by reading it rather than seeing it or having it explained.
I've actually found myself narrating (in my head, haha) some things in real life to test it out and see if it makes me appreciate real situations more. It's not really the same but it does give me a whole different perspective.
