.....this 'super computer' click here

Apparently there was going to be more info on it appearing this January, I heard a rumour that it appeared at the CES, anyone know anything?

Probably just wishful thinking or a (clever?) marketing scam

Interesting...I've heard of optical memory, and molecular memory (millions of GB in a cube of material 1cm x 1cm) but not any specific computer (or scam) based upon it....and a scam I believe it to be...

What i want to know is what they are trying to achieve if it is a scam?

If they are just trying gather publicity then when it is exposed as a scam, they are going to be ridiculed and never trusted and surely lose business and their reputation

Its all just 'dreamware' or even hallucination ware
These stories come up - usually on a slow day and half a page to fill.

Have you not noticed that the TV news is good at this- reporting the this that or the other discovery has been made. Then you realize that the reality is a Horizon or Discovery program on the topic is imminent
and a little thought would indicate such a program would have to have been 2 years in the making......
It is all really a lot of hot air.

Apparently it did make an appearance at the CES

Although they didn't do much to help disprove the scam theories
