I guess he meant this book?

He is not talking about moving data to the GPU. Moving data is meant between computers and/or data storage. For example having the fastest CPU in the world will not give you faster Netflix streaming, network DB access, better looking TikTok videos etc. It might reduce your wait to render said video, but uploading it will still take the same time as it would on a 10 year old Core Duo.
Remember the recent attack against Garmin. A group called Evil Corp encrypted their infrastructure, demanding $10m. The problem with this group is that it was illegal for Garmin to pay up, so they paid a third party to "deal with the issue", and that company paid the crims. Making these payments illegal will result in similar deals.
US secretary of state Mike Pompeo European Data Protection Supervisor announced a “Clean Network plan” he says offers a “comprehensive approach to guarding our citizens’ privacy and our companies’ most sensitive information from aggressive intrusions by malign actors, such as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) US of A”.
Don't expect to see this in mobiles because they don't have the required cooling. Unless you are willing to let your mobile phone preheat itself to 60 degrees C and then wait a couple of hours for it to cool to room temperature this will have no impact in your daily life.
Recharging a car in 10 minutes will have enormous power requirements, the infrastructure and production to support this on a mass scale is just not there yet and might not be within the next 10 to 20 years. Remember, electricity needs to be produced somehow and then brought to the recharging station. Recharging a Tesla to 80% in 10 minutes will require about half a megawatt of power, now imagine a recharging station in the middle of the desert with a dozen cars recharging at the same time...
Unfortunately using vacuum is not an alternative because that would require a much stronger (read: thicker) casing, which in turn would reduce the available space for platters. Remember, you are limited by the 3.5" HDD case size. Filling the interior with helium helps keep the pressure difference to a minimum.
