Ask Slashdot: Package Redirection Service For Shipping to Australia?

An anonymous reader writes “I’ve recently moved continents, and one of the things I’ve noticed is the lack of the latest technology, as well as high prices for books and other goods here in Australia. I’m looking at package redirection services from the US, and there’s a bewildering array of offerings, at a wide range of prices. What should I look out for?

The Mile Markers of Moore’s Law Are Meaningless

szotz writes “Keeping up the pace of Moore’s Law is hard, but you wouldn’t know it from the way chipmakers name their technology. The semiconductor industry’s names for chip generations (Intel’s 22nm, TSMC’s 28nm, etc) have very little to do with actual physical sizes, says IEEE Spectrum.
