Graphene, what can't it do? It is one the the strongest materials, conducts electricity extremely well and can be used to create transistors, is a great heat sink material (above), will allow only water vapor to pass through, can act as a photovoltaic cell, and will be able to act as a super capacitor to create batteries that charge hundreds of times faster than L-Ion, do not wear out, and can supply large amounts of power quickly:

"gadgets from becoming even more smaller" That is poor grammar buddy. even smaller is what it should be.

Ack! Remnants of an edited sentence past -- I'll chalk it up more to poor proofreading than poor grammar. In any case, you've proved my wife right: I'm a dufus. Fixed, along with the 0.2mm conversion's "about." Thanks for the feedback, folks.

I'll chalk that one up to bad editing (started to say "even more " and changed it), but 200 micrometers isn't "about 0.2 millimeters" -- it *IS* 0.2mm.

I think Brad and most of the staff are competent writers, but lately, in an effort to sound more conversational, MaxPC has lost its authoritative voice. Even some of Gordon's stuff in the last issue felt like it was lacking confidence, although I know Gordon's info was correct and he knew it. At best, you lose the "we know what we're talking about" vibe, and at worst you end up with these very un-geeky inaccuracies.

As a decade-long subscriber, I know how awesome you guys are. Prove it to the new readers! You can be humorous and still sound like experts, and I've seen you do it!

Assuming Moore's Law holds up. Which I hope to heaven it does. Humanity's technological future is screwed if Moore's Law ever breaks down (imho).

if you acutally knew what moores law states you wouild know that it says that we will eventully hit the preverbiale brick wall and transitors will stop shrinking which is the only thing that mores law really states i rest my case
