Moore's Law states that the number of integrated circuits in a CPU doubles every 18 months.

This "law" was named after Dr. Gordon E. Moore, cofounder of Intel Corporation. Originally, this was an observation he wrote in his article in the April 19, 1965 issue of "Electronics" magazine, in which he describes the general progress of integrated circuits. His original estimate was 12 months, then ten years after he wrote the article, he changed it to 24 months. Since then others - not Moore - have split the difference to 18 months. When it became apparent that his observation was becoming more accurate, they simplified his observation and called it Moore's Law. And people have been applying Moore's Law to everything from clock frequency to the number of transistors in a CPU of any printed circuit board.
According to Moore's Law, the Pentium 4 should reach the 2.8GHz speed from the current 1.4GHz in 18 months.

Named for Intel founder Gordon Moore. Moore's law states that the number of circuits in a CPU will double every 12 to 18 months.
If Moore's Law is correct, then computers will be eight times as powerful in three to four years

A law laid down by one James Moore stating the following;

"If you can think of it, no matter how sick or fucked up it may be, someone in the world is beating their meat to that thought even as you speak"
"That guy is jerkin off to a bucket of chicken? That's Moore's law for you..."

Coined by David of Collierville, TN, his premise is: if you post anything on the internet, someone you know will see it. No matter how anonymous or private or hidden or secure you may believe your pictures or blog or webpage to be, it will be found by someone who knows who you are, who will likely share their finding with others who know you. The lesson Moore's Law Too strives to teach is: do not upload anything you do not want shared.
Being dooced is when one is fired from their job as a direct result from blogging about it. The employer finding the blog is Moore's Law Too in effect. If you take a provocative picture of yourself and upload it anywhere, be prepared for someone to recognize you and share this.

A.K.A. Roy Moore's Law, is the observation that the number of pretty young under-aged honeypots in a crowded mall increases the chances of harassing, assaulting, and or raping some under-aged teenager as an approximate inverse proportion to the whole number of all teenaged girls present at the mall on any given afternoon.
Whoa, vile Roy was at the mall this afternoon and according to Moore's Law, Roy came home with a 14 year old girl, took her to his bedroom and made her feel his Johnson through his underwear before she cried to go home - what a fucking repugnant pedophile.
