Moore's Law gets a pick me up

Computers double in speed every 18 months, or so they used to say.  Moore's Law, so named after a fella called Gordon Moore, who went on to co-found a little company called Intel, observed that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit double every two years.  That was 1965, the same year the Rolling Stones released "I can't get no satisfaction." Later, the consensus shortened the time frame to 18 months, and so Moore's Law was born.

Alas, there is a view Moore’s Law now died. But IBM reckons it knows better. It says it has produced a two-nanometre chip. That marks a big improvement over the current state of the art, which is seven nanometres.  A nanometre is one-millionth of a millimetre.
