I love it when IBM pulls out the stops and gives us a good story. Remember Big Blue’s chess matches? That wasn’t just information about a new computer; it was a fairy tale.

This week’s press release is a little different; they wouldn’t have sold you Big Blue, but the new Blue Gene supercomputers are up for sale. I particularly like the analogy that “a 72-rack system would be 100,000 times more powerful than a home computer and process more operations per second than a stack of laptop computers nearly 1.5 miles high.”  That’s fun stuff!  Check it out!
