  • SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — In the race to build a faster computer chip, there is literally nowhere to go but up. Today's chip surfaces are packed with the tiniest electronic switches the laws of physics allow, but Intel Corp. says it is blowing past those limits with a breakthrough, three-dimensional transistor design it revealed Wednesday.

    Analysts call it one of the most significant developments in silicon transistor design since the integrated circuit was invented in the 1950s. It opens the way for faster smartphones, lighter laptops and a new generation of supercomputers — and possibly for powerful new products engineers have yet to dream up.

  • A letter from a bridesmaid.

    Hey Tracy,
    I received your request to be in your wedding. I honestly can’t believe you asked me. So you are going to marry Scott McClure — all I can say is that is an interesting choice. Well, of course I will be in your wedding since we are old friends. How have you been? I really haven’t talked to you in years.
    I really want to see these dresses that we will be wearing. You know I’m a little self-conscious, so please try to make it something figure-flattering. What will the groomsmen be wearing? I certainly hope that you don’t have any bald groomsmen. That will make for very unattractive wedding photos.
