April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Since their inception to the present day, computers have been getting smaller and faster. We now even carry smartphones in our pockets that can do more than the room sized supercomputers of past decades. Despite this, the very best personal computer (PC) available today runs slower and consumes more energy than the human brain. For that matter, a PC simulation of a mouse's brain functions runs 9,000 times slower than the actual mouse's...
