Researchers build room-temperature memory that doesn't need a current to retain data
December 19, 2014
All modern computer memory works on basically the same principle - an electrical current is used to change the charge state of a cell. That charge state is then "read" by the memory controller. Whether we're talking about NAND flash or RAM, this basic property is identical between them. Now, researchers at Cornell have announced and demonstrated a device based on bismuth ferrite that can store data and retrieve data without needing an electrical current to do so. The implications of such a room-temperature breakthrough could be profound - a long time from now. Magnetoelectric memory is attractive precisely because it removes the electrical currents that currently (pun intended) account for a substantial fraction of power consumption in a system. If the DRAM or cache subsystems could draw less electrical power, total device battery life would increase. The impact of shifting to alternative ferroelectric or magnetoelectric memory systems could be substantial - more than equal to the traditional gains of adopting new process nodes.

LETTERS
May 08, 2014
Coercion It is a reprehensible betrayal of the public trust for a public utility to threaten to withhold life-sustaining service, thus rendering legally uninhabitable the home of a paid-up citizen, over the generation of their water meter. This unthinkably inappropriate strong-arm tactic is not only way out of proportion to the supposed "crime," it is a callous abandonment of the utility's responsibility to the rate-paying public.
