Moore or less

Over 40 years ago Gordon Moore predicted how the integrated circuit would enable people to buy chips for the same price but double the complexity every two years.

The law has more-or-less governed hardware development. It has been great news for consumers of IT, up to a point, but has also led to built-in obsolescence and it is not green. Moore’s Law may have driven the IT industry for the last 42 years, but in 2007 we need a new law, one that will reduce the landfills of old hardware.
