Earlier this year, IBM showed how to lithographically place them (see link below with amazing pictures of perfectly placed nanotube channels) high precision and now they've shown how to make a low resistance connection to the nanoscale devices thus extending Moore's Law one-more-time baby! They've still got to get rid of the back-gate, but the handwriting is on the wall.
