If you're looking for the funniest stuff, I suggest starting with the Steve, Don't Eat It Homage and then the travel category. You're on your own with the older posts that have yet to be categorized.

Use It To Run Your ESPN Phone

World peace.

A cure for cancer.

An end to hunger.

Given a nearly unlimited amount of computing power, these might be some of the problems that might be addressed, or at least talked about?

Intel announced that they created a chip containing 80 processors and delivering a peak of 1 teraflops (that's 1,000,000,000,000 floating point operations per second). Don't get too excited as it is only a research development.

But what if it wasn't just a research project? What glorious applications could be run on such a chip?

"Intel suggested one possible consumer use: a program that intelligently monitors a televised sporting event and automatically identifies and compiles key highlights like a slam dunk or a home run by a favorite player based on the spectator's preferences."
Aim high, Intel. Aim high!
