Small devices Big Changes

I've always wondered, where the world is going to. Smaller chips, but faster throughput. Smaller music players, smaller computers, smaller laptops, smaller... well everything. ALMOST.

You don't see core changes, such as smaller electricity generators for the same amount of electricity to be generated. Smaller cars acheiveing off-road status,smaller cities sustaining growth in a sensible way. again ALMOST. Look at this article here We see in this case that smaller wind turbines producing the same effect of large turbines. If this can be done, in a low cost manner, it could revolutionise the world. But lo wait up. Things cannot just move because a small group is actually trying to do this. Do we think that a large country like US is going to stop using Oil?

Oil, it is the most important business for US. In the second half of the last century, they have waged wars,economically weakend countries to their knees(Quoting the idea from the book Confessions of an Economic Hitman). Do you really think that they woud promote such a technology to become viable? I don't think so, as long as Oil is controlled by them, alternative technologies would never surface. If not them, the OPEC, would align themselves to US to stop such a technology-shift(Bungling for humanity) to happen.

Alternative fuels, such as Bio-Diesel,Ethanol... are all fine, as long as still they are in the low consumption stage, if anybody has/will invent a technology to run cars on Water economically, this would never come to the forefront at the moment, till OPEC and US walk hand in hand.,,,
