it's kinda an interesting read about synthetic diamonds, their potential uses (one of which is to replace silicon as the material that chips are made out of, because it can withstand much higher temperatures), and what de beer's, the company that has a monopoly over the diamond industry, is trying to do about them:
Cool. At this point, I wonder how much it will help computing power considering how small transistors already are. There was talk in class about Carbon Nanotubes possibly shrinking them more... I wonder if the fact that Diamonds are made of carbon will be helpful along this venue?
