the shrinking of chip feature sizes to 65-nanometers, small enough to be on the same scale as viruses; and the move to more productive 12-inch silicon wafers.
That's just crazy...Virus's size. We're not too far from the days of nanotechnology it seems. Wonder if we will eventually get down to 10nm and then below 1nm in which I don't even know what smaller than a nanometer would be.
