IBM Chief Technology Officer
'Hold your index finger out in front of your face,'
Meyerson said in a telephone interview from IBM
headquarters in New York. 'In less time than
it would take a beam of light to travel from
your knuckle to your fingertip, the new IBM
chip would complete one task and start
looking for the next, he said.'"

- I'm glad they stopped measuring chip speed in Hertz and are now using the
simpler metric fingertip-to-knuckle units.
