You won't be seeing anything from this until 2020 or later, if ever, so...

I think you might have a bad case of "inability to understand internet sarcasm"!

IBM currently holds the largest Patents the tech industry..

In 2010, IBM became the first company to be granted more than 5,000 U.S. patents in a single year. IBM racked up 5,896 patents, a gain of 20 percent from 4,914 patents in 2009.

2010 U.S. Patent Leaders*
1. IBM - 5,896
2. Samsung - 4,551
3. Microsoft - 3,094
4. Canon - 2,552
5. Panasonic - 2,482
6. Toshiba - 2,246
7. Sony - 2,150
8. Intel - 1,653
9. LG Electronics - 1,490
10. HP - 1,480


I doubt anyone would want to sue IBM for any patents..

Gotta love IBM, they've been doing it for a hundred years and just keep going at it. Good work, i hope these make it into production soon. Go innovation!

[citation][nom]RazorBurn[/nom]I didn't see Apple in my last post of the TOP TEN.. Yet their are the biggest Patent Troll ive seen..[/citation]
Yeah because they probably don't have more than 5, which they misuse all the time. One for the shape of the ipad, one for the ipod's wheel (i know it's not used now), one for the nano's size, one for the iMac not being a PC (or maybe Steve Woz has that) and one for the extremely overpriced screen. Then i heard that the AC/DC adapter that macbooks use (yes, that white square) was patented by jobs. likewise, rest of the IP probably belongs to jobs and woz.

Oh, almost forgot, probably own the copyright to the statement "you're holding it wrong" as well...but that's not a patent so no points there! :p

Now if only they would let AMD use it in their Processors to compete with the trigate from Intel. Much like their hk/mg version that has never appeared yet.

According to IBM, it also developed carbon nanotube transistors with sub-10 nm channel lengths, which are capable of outperforming equivalent silicon-based transistors.
Now, if they integrate this transistor in to billions of transistors to make processor.

Unfortunately, IBM tech. is not for general public, unless they will license their tech. to other manufacturers.

Let me also add a couple of words that I typed with little or no thinking.

Wow, there's some good stuff here. Any other company and I might think they were just talking out their butts, but IBM knows what the they're doing. The 2020's are shaping up to be amazing.

[citation][nom]quangluu96[/nom]Hm, i forgot where the source is, but i read that Graphene is can replace Silicon, but not reliable or something.[/citation]
or something

The problem will most likely be the fabrication process. It needs to be easy enough to make or it wont ever take off.

My computer does something in a billionth of a second but I forget what it is. Now I remember, the blue screen.

It wasn't pure sarcasm. It was more of a joke.

This is actually a lot less interesting than it sounds. Actually making the carbon nanotubes is a messy process that usually results in a tangle of tubes of varying electrical properties. To be useful they have to be separated and sorted, all doable but not nearly as manufacturable as lithography. Making one device is hard, making many is absurd. This is very blue sky.
