"The Inside Story" takes a deeper look into technology news by interviewing the people behind the story. We talk to the sources involved in the news and explore important and interesting issues.
Much of computer technology's progress has occurred because of developments described by Moore's law, which says that the number of transistors that can be placed on an integrated circuit doubles about every two years.
In today's era of battery-powered mobile devices, computing is being driven as much by energy efficiency as by performance. Research by Stanford University associate professor Jonathan Koomey discovered that since the 1940s, computers' energy efficiency has doubled about every year and a half. The Inside Story interviewed Koomey to learn more about his research and his predictions for the future.
