    Happy birthday to...

    The transistor, who is now 60.

    Because lets face it, a Pentium with 1GB of RAM built out of vacuum tubes would be a tad on the large side

    Meh, for the transistors this is obviously the 111100th birthday - nothing at all interesting about that. Wait 100 more years for the 1000000th birthday, then we celebrate.
    All the buzzt!

    Happy B-day transistor. Thanks to you my computer system fits on my desktop instead of requiring a two story building. Ok so it doesn't really fit on my desktop - it's a full tower but thx anyways.
