maladroit wrote to us with an interesting press release from Lucent Technologies. The former Bell company has made a breakthru using microscopic mirrors in fiber that will allow data to be carried at upwards of ten times current speeds. Supposedly, a ten terabit router has already been created, and it will be rolled out to the public towards the end of next year.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them WHAT to do and they will
surprise you with their ingenuity.
