AMD's three-legged chipEdit
If your dog loses a leg, you don't take him out and shoot him, do you? Neither does AMD. In a move that's both clever and ecofriendly, AMD has decided that quad-cores with a single blown core can be packaged and resold as triple-core chips. Genius! Also today, Facebook gets all Google, the New York Times sees the power of search, and software goes toe-to-toe with Web apps. Again.
