It's never too late to have a happy childhood!

But 128 inch string?  Is there any point?   As I remember we got them working (just) when we were out of earshot - probably 50 feet or more.  We used vegetable cans of 6 inch diameter or so.

Finally an application for String Theory

I'm glad to see String Theory finally used for something practical.  I hope Apple isn't trying to patent it.  Can you imagine taking something as incomprehensible as String Theory and letting a team of top-notch patent lawyers take it to a new level?  The mind boggles.

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
