I assume you will come back to us with reports on some real working devices running some real working apps. This will be exiting :) My head has been thinking what this rascal could do for my line of interests.

Congratulations Adapteva, When this idea was floating around to make multicore computing power, I was sure We were going to achieve it. AS a scientist working in parallel computing from 1988, I am delighted to see teraflops in Palms. 2 years back when I told this, There were people skeptical about this. The testing and bringing it out with software to control, is a challenge. Dr. TRG Nair , www.trgnair.org, trgnair@yahoo.com

I hope Adapteva meets their goal of a $100 supercomputer. But remember please don't count your chicken's before they're hatched. Even if they meet close to their goal of $100, to me, it would still be a resounding success. (Just trying to give Adapteva some wiggle room so that they can make a little profit.) I remember the late Peter Drucker mentioning that companies should be careful not to underprice their products as it can cause them to paint themselves into the corner of bankruptcy or a failed product due to economics. Price products for long term success such that both the end customers as well as the company wins. Make it win-win. I am hoping Adapteva all the best.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
