Study: Moore's Law Does Not Apply To Clues

Filed under
Humor

In a dramatic new study to be published in next month's issue of the Journal of Anecdotal Evidence, researchers have concluded that the quantity of available clues is only growing at a slow, linear rate. While computing power might double every 18 months according to Moore's Law, the same growth rate does not apply to cluedom.

"You can beat people over the head with a cluestick all day long, but that doesn't change the fact that society is suffering from a serious clue shortage," said study author Dr. Sara E. Brum, Chairwoman of the Department of Vaguely Useful Research at West-Central Wyoming University. "Besides, such cluestick trauma can easily lead to serious brain injuries."

Another expert on the topic, Dr. Grant Reiter, said bluntly, "It's becoming harder and harder to go out and get a clue. The Earth's population continues to accelerate, but the growth rate of the clueosphere is simply not keeping pace. There's not enough clues to go around."

Find The Perfect Linux-Compatible PC With Ubuntu's Hardware Database

Some PCs are more difficult to run Linux on than others — it’s all about the drivers. Some laptops are available with Linux pre-installed, but plenty aren’t — even though they may make great Linux PCs. The Ubuntu Certified Hardware database helps you find Linux-compatible PCs.
