+ - Moore's Law for Motherboards

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "VIA CEO Wenchi Chen revealed a business card-sized motherboard billed as the 'world's first industry-standard form-factor for PC/phone convergence,' at Computex this week. The mobile-ITX" board measures 3 x 1.8 inches. It's half the size of pico-ITX, which was half the size of nano-ITX, which, in turn, was half-the size of mini-ITX — which was already small. It's not clear whether VIA will make these tiny motherboards available to end users, or if they will only be sold directly to device makers, but generally all of VIA's tiny motherboard formats have spread around to other suppliers and become widely available. This is clearly 'Moore's Law' for motherboards... what'll they do for an encore next year, I wonder?"

It's hard to think of you as the end result of millions of years of evolution.

Working...
