Researchers at Arizona State University's Center for Applied Nanoionics have developed a new low-cost, low-power computer memory technology that can enable the production of thumb-size drives capable of storing a terabyte of information. A terabyte is a 1,000 gigabytes.
"Thanks to a new technique for manipulating charged copper particles at the molecular scale, 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," according to Wired magazine.
