those specs way too off for 2034 ;) Moore's law isn't effective when processing technologies become smaller for CPUs and other ASIC. I do long for 3 PHz cpu though :D

the problem with moore's law is that it only takes into account acceleration -- there is such thing as a top speed, if it has been hit or not is regardless of its existance.

when cars were first being developed, they hit a J-curve as well, and if someone had calculated the speed for current-day, it would probably be light speed or something.
