Does Quad Core Matter?

This is no doubt the first realistic look at where the newer chip technologies will actually fit into our lives and Lloyd Case does a fairly good job of opening the discussion.

As the show cast has pointed out several times, we are now at a stage where we can routinely purchase more computing power than we will ever need, much less use. The manufacturers would love it if we kept buying more and more power, but in truth, somewhere along the way they are going to have to make gains in efficiency and ease of use because none of us will actually need the scale of basic power available. I actually look forward to that situation.

Anyway, here's the first salvo in what will surely be a nearly unending discussion. It's worth your time.
