It may be a question of addiction. 'Like' this comment, if you are addicted...

I agree that's true. However, in a lot of cases I think it takes away the ability to relate face-to-face. Obviously I love technology (and it pays the bills), but if I weren't on my computer so much of the time, would I be more sociable, out doing more, etc.? Yes, I think I would. Do you see limitations as a result of technology at all?

Quite the opposite. Technology relieves loneliness by allowing contact with friends and loved ones that are at considerable distance.

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.
