Michael Suess working hard to dispel common misconceptions about what Gordon Moore actually said. It’s a good read, and a good bookmark to email to your manager the next time he asserts Moore’s law no longer holds.

Or this FAQ on news.com. Or just kindly explain what I have just told you here, so we can finally get rid of this misconception. Thank You!
