Salinas crop circle

LAS VEGAS — A 310-foot “crop circle” in a Monterey County barley field that mystified locals this week was explained Sunday: it was a publicity stunt by Nvidia, a maker of chips for PCs and smartphones.

The crop circle near Chualar, six miles south of Salinas, contained a stylized image of a computer chip and the number “192″ in Braille. On Sunday, the company announced the Tegra K1, a new chip for tablets and smartphones that contains 192 computing “cores,” or mini-computers, for graphics applications.

Well, I suppose it beats another crappy Super Bowl commercial.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
