The world’s first semiconductor transistor was created in 1947, as of 2007 the modern microprocessor contains 291 MILLION transistors (Intel Core 2, 4 MiB model). A difference of only 60 years! And think about how much more powerful you’re newest PC is compared to your last. In 1903 man first took flight in a powered aircraft. A mere 66 years later, man first set foot on the moon using rockets! In 1862 a man named Alphonse Bear de Rochas figured out how to compress gas in the same cylinder in which it was to burn, thus creating an internal combustion engine. This is the way we still do it in modern automobiles and it is now 2007, a difference of 145 years!!! What is wrong with this picture? Why do we accept such lack of innovation?
