IBM develops a faster transistor

IBM announced they have developed a transistor that runs up to 100 times faster then the fastest CPU on the market today.
When cooled to absolute zero, the transistor runs at 500 GHz, but will run at 300 GHz at room temperature.
They've achieved this by lacing the silicone with germanium to achieve faster transfer rates.
The possibilities are endless for this kind of technology.

Sony the new top dog?

Sony, a definate late comer to the market, comes out swining with the new DSLR-A100 10.2M digital SLR camera.
This monster of a camera comes packed with features. Weighing in at 1lb 3oz without the battery or lens the alpha comes with image stabilization built into the camera, and a dust resistant CCD that vibrates when you turn the camera off to knock off any dust that may have landed on the CCD while changing lenses.
This top dog also comes with an auto focusing system when it detects the eye at the viewfinder, selectable 9 point auto focus, 3 fps continuious shot mode, and dual media formats (CF I/II + memory stick).
Possibly the most significant is the built in image stabilization, I really can't wait to see how well it works.
The camera with an 18-70mm lens kit will retail for 999.95 when it comes out in late July.
