Cell Trio

The tiny square shaped object that the guy in the image is holding is called "Cell trio" --the revolutionary new chip designed from ground up for multimedia applications running on networks.

You console gamers out there will be ecstatic to know that Cell trio is promising to provide a much more improved 3-D graphics --this translates to amazing game experience, doesn't it? The first product to use this new chip is Sony PS3.
Now, I am not a fan of playing console games, in fact I admit I have never played! But it seems there is a big market demand for such enhancements that has initiated collaboration among the three giant hi-tech companies, Sony, IBM and Toshiba to shell out $400 million to bring this chip to the market.
This is a significantly good start for the New Year for the chip industry since this chip is using the 32-nanometer technology --meaning the width of the smallest circuit wire on the chip is 32-nanometer. Amazing!

We are almost a week into 2006 and 2005 is beginning to feel and sound like so yesterday! I certainly don't think 2005 was a good year. There was too much death and destruction: massive earthquakes in Asia, mud slides in America, suicide bombers in Europe and Middle East.
May 2006 be a year of more harmony and peace among humans and between humans and nature.
