Re: Not just Ballmer
Using 'leverage' as a verb? See picture.
Re: How ?
Err, am confused by the answers here.
Basically, electrical signals propagate similarly to the speed of light. They have constant speed at a certain temperature depending of the interconnect and materials of the chip. That means that, because the speed of the signal propagation is fixed, the only way to reduce the time is to make the traces shorter, and this can only be achieved by adding pipeline stages. That is why the Pentium 4 "netburst" even had pipelines that did no work at all, as their purpose was just to reduce the length of critical paths of pipeline stages. To reduce the required time to propagate a signal on a critical path, is to increase the maximum possible frequency.
I understand it is bad that the players took advantage of a bug, but the real ones to blame here are the developers.
Is this English?
To lever -> verb.
Leverage -> noun.
Leveraging -> ?
