search for streacom fc8 as the case. then, stay under 65w (to be safe) and you can be fully fanless.

for htpc use, there is NO reason to ever have a fan, again. even the i3 has a 35w chip that works just fine for movies and desktop stuff.

At $190 for the case alone, I can think of at least a hundred reasons not to build a fanless box.

i can think of at least 190 reasons to use ARM over x86. ;)

I would be more impressed with a paper by people who could actually make the software these guys theorize about, rather than sophomoricaly discussing it.

umm... who exactly "could actually make the software these guys theorize about"? the whole world is dying to know an frankly i would love to chat with the person that makes mankind obsolete.

Google has a good amount of people that have been working on this since the DARPA days and effectively already have a working prototype. Unless Uber is hiring people that have been working on the Google project, they are sadly mistaken if they think they can beat Google too the punch.

Build a system that even a fool can use and only a fool will want to use it.
