TECHNOBYTE for 10 July 2015

At a summit in Australia this week, Randi Zuckerberg called for a digital detox. Kids are way too immersed in their devices, she says. Zuckerberg isn’t someone you’d expect to be weighing the benefits of getting more kids offline. Now the head of the social media company Zuckerberg Media, she previously was a senior level marketing director at Facebook. But over the last few years she has become an increasingly urgent voice in the conversation about getting kids to turn off computers, smartphones and video games — at least some of the time.

IBM showed off a prototype chip today that is being hailed as a technological breakthrough for the tiny transistors -- electrical switches that help power a computer -- that have been made so thin they're 1/10,000th the width of a human hair. The breakthrough -- the result of research at IBM and the State University of New York Polytechnic Institute in Albany -- could allow as many as 20 billion transistors to be placed on a chip the size of a fingernail and is half the size of the current 14 nanometer standard, company officials said. A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter.
