    Since 1980, personal computer processing power and harddrive storage has roughly doubled every two years - as predicted by Moore's Law.  Which technology has been stagnant in that same amount of time?  Battery performance. The current battery technology, Lithium-ion, was invented in 1979 and brought into mass production by Sony in 1991.  According to this article at Battery University,
