The breakthrough could mean cheaper and higher speed computer networks and help to speed up the transfer of data inside computers.

Perhaps instead of high speed links in your computer communicating serially through wires the data will be beamed directly from chip to chip!"

If a listener nods his head when you're explaining your program, wake him up.
