Looking ahead - technology in 2008

Abstract:
As computer processors get smaller, so does the physical size of computer memory, but there is a limit.

As the components become more cramped, they create more heat and cause weird quantum effects to occur.

Fortunately researchers at the Centre for Applied Nanoionics have made a breakthrough.

By using trace amounts of copper, mixed with Msilicon, they believe they can develop flash memory sticks that will hold terabytes, or thousands of gigabytes.

While it may be sometime later this decade before we see terabyte-sized memory in the stores, an alternative that is sure to appear in 2008 is remote storage.
