Kris, I hear you. i would much rather be home to give my kids a hug. However, the reality of my professional career is that i need to travel. Now when i say i want to stay in touch - i am really just talking audio.

Hard not to agree that keeping in touch with loved ones is a great use of technology...but is more really that much better? is having to see a person much better than just talking to them...or perhaps seeing them in person and be able to touch them would be so much more valuable? haptics anyone?

Keeping in touch with loved ones is a great use of the technology and one I use every day. Another use is to make it possible to continue to write software that is inefficient when it comes to network bandwidth use. "Use all you want, we'll make more" has been the marching orders for many developers over the years.

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.
