    I was thinking about this 2 years ago when someone brought up the fact
    they hadn't been able to move artificial intelligence forward nearly
    as much as they'd have hoped. Now it seems a shift to analog might
    come to pass. It ties in with the emphasis of various corporations on
    the developement of nanotechnology. Motorola's announcement of
    production of billion-element displays seems to be related.
    I wonder if this means they could produce something like a high
    performance vidicon tube (obviously in a different format than the
    old, long tubes) as a new kind of digital camera sensor, a sensor with
    a smoothly linear response and a much broader dynamic range?

    So how exactly can a sensor with "smoothly linear response" provide a
    broader dynamic range?..Oh, wait--it can't.
