IBM revealed that they are able to reduce the amount of heat given out by computer chips. The results of the research was announced at the BroadGroup Power and Cooling for Data Centres Summit in London.

This good news is tempered by the revelation that IBM expect chips to get hotter in the future, so new research has already been initiated to find new ways to reduce heat. They have already begun experimenting with cooling systems that use water rather than air.
