nice one HP!
Research work on HP's never-ever-forget Memristor concept is proceeding apace. Memristor technology could provide a new type of computer memory that's much faster than flash memory. HP Labs' engineers in Palo Alto have demonstrated control over how the technology operates, opening the door, they say, to its incorporation into …
While it seems to fit the bill quite nicely, it is more than the electrical properties of a silicon based circuitry that make it workable. 100 G impact withstanding means that it can be used in a rugged fashion.
It is hard to tell if this technology will be able to match ALL the properties we are now used to. Is it pocket worthy is what I am getting at.
If so though I enjoy the thought of great leaps of advancement in tech as much as the next man. It could record all your brain and you could live on inside a mandroid / womandroid suit.
All those poor suckers who jumped the gun with cryostasis. poor forgotten souls. We may NEVER forget. which could actually be the problem with my suggestion.
What happened to you, El Reg? You used to find some insubstantial reason to post a wiki-bashing article almost every single day. Maybe Steven Goddard's pseudoscience now satisfies your need for brainless repetition of doctrine where pragmatic argument would be more appropriate?
The referenced wikipedia article cites latencies of a second for changing state -- not exactly a flash-killer until that's been addressed (plus the usual manufacturing challenges and number of duty cycles).
So, are they starting to get serious write latencies, or is that still at the research stage?
