Transmeta was a cpu manufacturing startup and Ed Kelly left in 2001
after management changes.

I think it is a bit unfair for Keith to call someone "way out of date"
when he is referring to a secret project unknown even to Google. By
that standard almost the whole world is 'way out of date' on every
secret project.

I am also doubtful about how much weight to place on secret blue-sky
projects that are virtually just a few Excel spreadsheets and some
PowerPoint slides. Computers are full of these proposals that will
never enter the real world. I would wait and see whether this new tech
ever gets off the ground before relying on it too much.
