If Myspace Were A Country, It Would Be....

The 5th largest in the world (true) and almost 75% of the population would be 13 year old emo children! (My estimate.)

This is ******* cool....watch the whole thing, very interesting.

INteresting. I think I got an email like that last month. Much more impressive in a video.

Holy shit dude im trippin balls after that.

in 2049 a $1000 computer can possess more computational power than then entire human species o.0 Thats insane.

Something to ponder:

The total computational power of the brain is limited by several factors, including the ability to propagate nerve impulses from one place in the brain to another. Propagating a nerve impulse a distance of 1 millimeter requires about 5 x 10-15 joules. Because the total energy dissipated by the brain is about 10 watts, this means nerve impulses can collectively travel at most 2 x 1015 millimeters per second. By estimating the distance between synapses we can in turn estimate how many synapse operations per second the brain can do. This estimate is only slightly smaller than one based on multiplying the estimated number of synapses by the average firing rate, and two orders of magnitude greater than one based on functional estimates of retinal computational power. It seems reasonable to conclude that the human brain has a raw computational power between 10^13 and 10^16 operations per second.

The average CPU Right now?

Pentium 4: 558 MFLOPS (558*10^6)

q6600 (3.2ghz/Dual Core): 2.76 GFLOPS (2.76*10^9)

The Brain?:

Between a petaFLOP (10^15) and an exaflop (10^18)...

thats 10 Zeros from the higher end CPUs right now. The fastest computer in the WORLD runs at a teraFLOP. Instanity. Now multiply that by the population of the planet and you get a pants shittingly fast CPU. For $1000.
