Actually, I do have to wave a little flag at one point. In this release Altera say that they are "the first to roll out all 28 nm FPGA product families in production." Now, I may be wrong here, but I have a feeling that Altera's 28nm SoC FPGAs are not in production yet... I will report further if I hear differently...

Now, all credit to Altera for this -- they certainly do have some impressive technology. It's not my fault that as soon as I see "Forbes" I'm reminded that these are the folks who took the time to compile a list of the twenty-five largest FICTIONAL companies in history ( http://bit.ly/RN5MRL ). Also, the little rascals ranked Huntsville, Alabama (the place I currently hang my hat) as #4 in the list of "America's Geekiest Cities" ( http://bit.ly/TqAW3F ) ... OK, I'll give them that one :-)

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
