Researchers have developed a low-cost, low-power computer memory that could put terabyte-sized thumb drives in consumers' pockets within a few years. Researchers at Arizona State University say their memory is, bit-for-bit, one-tenth the cost of -- and 1,000 times as energy-efficient as -- flash memory, the predominant memory technology in iPhones and other mobile devices. We have to see if they can mass-produce this at the expected price, but it sounds promising. More info at Wired. In another article around the buzzed/hyped Nano-thingy "One nanotechnology researcher said supercomputers small enough to fit into the palm of your hand are only 10 or 15 years away". For people needing an affordable laptop sooner: you might want to check out this review of the new Asus Eee PC. Or what about this new sub $200 Google PC's running gOS?!
