Superbrain Chip, N. Koreans, and the Super Bowl
Advance reports suggest the chip is significantly more powerful and versatile than the next generation of micro-processors announced by the consortium's competitors, Intel and AMD....This sounds like significant competition for Intel and AMD and a new cycle of corporate and consumer expenditures.
The two leading chipmakers are just moving from 32-bit to 64-bit computing and to dual-core processors essentially two “brains” on a single chip.Cell is understood to have at least four cores and be significantly faster than Intel and AMD chips.
The Los Angeles-based Association of People From Five Northern Provinces said on Sunday it learned that 15 North Koreans were arrested by U.S. Border Patrol as they tried to smuggle themselves into the U.S. from Tijuana, Mexico. But the association’s president Kim Ho-jeong added it remained to be confirmed whether the 15 really were defectors.I am glad they were caught, but how many more go undetected?

Finally, the Super Bowl. New England is a seven point favorite, however Philadelphia hasn't won a sports championship for 22 or 23 years
and has been to the Super Bowl three times in the last four years. This is their fourth try in five Minnesota has been in this position and so has Denver, so why not Philly? The last time was 1981 and they lost, the drought ends today. Philly by one!
