Improving magnetic memory

Via KurzweilAI.net — It’s going to be very interesting to see where memory and data storage ends up over the next few years. There’s a lot of action across many different types of storage.

I’ve long thought we are heading toward something along the lines of dumb boxes with your personal data, apps, what-have-you containted on some combination of personal storage (think flash thumb drive) and the “cloud.” Right now Google offers a lot of possibilities of running your online life off its storage. At the same time I doublt most enterprise, and many regular users (such as me), are all that comfortable allowing that data to live somewhere else.

Carbon Ring Storage Could Make Magnetic Memory 1,000 Times More Dense
