Most Under-rated Technologies

I hate lists! The reason is simple; Lists remind me of all those trite bullet points that I see at the beginning, middle and end of every single &%# PowerPoint presentation that I’ve ever had the misfortune to experience.

Still, there is no denying the popularity of lists on the web. So reluctantly, I’ll enter the fray with my first list on the 5 most under-rated technologies of the last year:

  • Chip-package-board software, which promises to be a seamless and harmonious blending of both EDA and CAD tool markets. Not!
  • MEMs, thanks to the incorporation of cost effective embedded processors (good call, Pallab)
  • Advances in solar cell technologies, especially from recycled chip wafers.
  • Wireless anything
  • Finally, the most under-rated technology of all: pen and paper.
