We probably need to develop some kind of software that really would scale in usability according to the amount of processing it runs on. I think it can become a big problem that people settles for <$1000 computers. This could stop the exponential growth in the semiconductor industry and delay the time when us ordinary folks can get our hands on the raw iron.

Here I have the same goal as Intel. Keep those processor hungry apps coming!
