1000 times faster but only 100's of times more durability. So it is still a limited life span tech, and thus not suitable for random access; it needs wear levelling.

Nice, but the article's author has forgotten to address the issue of securely erasing it before you give/throw it away.

Default ReRAM, fast just got faster

Anybody else excited about the potential of Intel and Micron's recently announced ReRAM? What's a good distributed computing project that could benefit from non-volatile memory that's "1,000 times faster than flash."?

I have not read your link, as yet, but is it the same technology as this? If so, I wonder how this compares to Samsung's vertical flash, as well as the upcoming Toshiba product.

They've never met my grandma then. I think my grandma may have invented those words.

My grandma payed bills online and ordered an airline ticket online at the age of 89-90. She checked emails and played a bridge game I installed for her.

Now she is 96 and unfortunately stopped using the computer since the last 3-4 years at least. She is still pretty sharp but forgetful.

I learned a tale from Stephen Hawking's sister. Their mother was in her nineties. Stephen bought her a computer and insisted she learned how to send and receive email because talking to her on the phone was too arduous for him. She did.
