    Here's a fun little technological infographic to chew on this fine Tuesday afternoon. This image below is an infographic with a breakdown comparison of the processing power (in Floating point Operations Per Second) of various computing devices throughout the history of the micro-chip.

    It's too big to include in the front page news, but since it does include smartphones, we thought it would be cool to share somewhere in the forums. It's crazy just how stupidly fast the new Samsung Galaxy S6 really is!

    WOW, it really has come a long way in a relatively short time. Left the Cray-1 in a cloud of dust in a hurry. ;)
