Yeah IBM, It's still common to use this specific PPC core in some of their Custom Foundry parts, the Wii-U's processor also made by IBM is based on the 750FX.. Well it will soon to be Global Foundries making these as they're acquiring IBM's semiconductor business and all IP.. I currently work IBM's test and development, hopefully will have a job with Global Foundries.

I don't really care what the masses think of 3D printing, I enjoy one around the house to solve minor inconveniences like replacing the missing bin out of my parts drawer or a smarter solution to hang tools in the cellar. It's literally given me the capability of thinking about an idea and getting it into a physical object in a matter of hours.. Not all the things I make are revolutionary, but it's an awesome to be able to create something custom that can't be found in stores or easily purchased. It's like a bit like Linux and opensource, it's here.. it doesn't need to take over the world or be on everyone's computer. The people that do understand it takes advantages of the bonuses.. if you don't understand it or don't feel it has a place in your lives, that's fine..
