I'm not going to be like everyone else and say your opinion about Into Darkness is wrong (I enjoyed it overall, but had major problems with it as well). But you're treating io9 as if it's a single person. There are a lot of different writers here and they're not required to share the same opinions or criteria of… » 7/24/14 9:09am Today 9:09am

The publisher literally just used find a replace to replace… » 7/03/14 8:42am 7/03/14 8:42am

The issue facing Moore's law is that, as transistors get smaller, they will eventually reach a point where Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principal becomes a problem, as they will be a sizes where the position of electrons can not be counted on. The electrons will essentially leak out of the transistors and burn out the… » 7/01/14 4:13pm 7/01/14 4:13pm
