We are witnesses to an unparalleled period of advances in technology. Apple's new iPad Air® is a mere 7.5 mm thin and weighs just 454 g. Its astounding new A7 chip allows 64-bit architecture, that up until now, would only be found on desktops. It works for 10 hours on battery power alone. It is millions of times more powerful than the first computers built less than 70 years ago, but is available at a fraction of the cost of these first behemoths that were built in large rooms. Is it true then, that advancements in the medical field, and in particular, those in the pharmaceutical sciences, are keeping up with technology's logarithmic growth curve? You be the judge.
