Mer om redux-Moore

Även Alexis Madrigal intresserade sig för studien jag nämnde i det tidigare inlägget, och exemplifierade talande - ur inlägget:

Imagine you've got a shiny computer that is identical to a Macbook Air, except that it has the energy efficiency of a machine from 20 years ago. That computer would use so much power that you'd get a mere 2.5 seconds of battery life out of the Air's 50 watt-hour battery instead of the seven hours that the Air actually gets. That is to say, you'd need 10,000 Air batteries to run our hypothetical machine for seven hours.
