Koomey's Law

Named after Stanford University professor Jonathan Koomey - - Koomey's Law states that electrical efficiency of computing has doubled every 1.6 years since the mid-1940s.

The key point - - for a fixed amount of computational power, the need for battery capacity will fall by half every 1.6 years.  Very good news for a future that will be dominated by mobile devices, sensors, and controls.

The Economist has more at A deeper law than Moore's?.
