I recently toted my laptop with me to a family gathering, at which my grandmother asked me if I ever turn my computer off. I told her that I don’t, and when she asked why, I replied “Because then I’d have to wait for it to boot up.” When she asked how long ‘booting up’ takes, I was almost too embarassed to say, “About 30 seconds”.

The Gadget Lab on reports that computer makers are making strides toward a new ‘quick boot-up’. In the not-so-distant future, your PC’s boot-up may only take as long as ‘a sip of tea’…Now that’s easy to swallow!
