Signs of the singularity: When Robert has to update his
predictions every 12 hours...

Given the most recent AMD timeline (30nm by 2009):
we squeak under 1nm by ~2029 and hit attoscale by ~2145.

I expect I'll have to update this again around the time of
the evening news today...

Also IBM announced that they think transistor speeds will top
out around 30 THz.

There is a discussion on /. for those interested.
