There was a time when CTL-ALT-DEL carried some authority on a PC and could be used to force a shutdown. Now I find it is usually completely ignored. On the devices which lock-up and won't shutdown (or restart), I guess we've all had the experience of having to remove the battery to turn them off. For devices without removable batteries, we just have to sit the device down until it runs itself dead.

When Apple released first iPod touch, they eliminated almost all mechanical switches. It even didn't have volume up/down button. Great, until you carry the iPod and get into subway station. Every time you get on and off the train, you have to bring up iPod from your pocket, unlock the screen, open control panel and change the volume "by touch". It was terrible design mistake. Fortunately Apple was not a fool - they added mechanical volume buttons on subsequent iPod Touch and iPhone. But I still don't like iPhone's "unlock by slide" feature. I wonder whey they didn't put a nice, mechanical, positive-feeling, one-hand-operational unlock switch, just like not-so-frequently-used "silent mode" switch.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
