Mind Your Business
Think Inside the Box
I was far out in a quantum future when I realized I forgot to upgrade my minibrainphone, so I jumped in the janky time machine and went back to a pre-quantum future where minibrain CPUs still existed. See, several years beyond my primeline, Intel launched a chipset that used real organic brain matter to process instructions. Not gonna lie, these things were awesome despite their fragility. Turns out lab-grown brains running your devices are hyper sensitive to temperature.
Let’s not get into having to feed your computer biomass on top of electricity. It’s like having to buy fish food for your laptop. And the minibrain’s performance is affected by the diet. Personally I like sticking to a low carb diet for my phone, the extra ketones make it perform better. But, don’t get me started on vegan laptops. Those things are only good for minesweeper and solitaire.
