Nuclear Data Explosion

We are on the verge of a nuclear data explosion. On Christmas day alone this year, 7 million combined Android and iPhones were activated, along with 240 million app downloads! The number of angry birds hurled that day must have been in the bazillions.

Staying on top of industry trends like this is of course a key part of my job, and looking through recent data, I’ve uncovered ten stats that reinforce the idea that device proliferation, increased spectrum and rise in wireless subscriptions are leading to massive increase in data consumption:

The limits of magnetic memory?

IBM has successfully created a magnetic memory bit of a mere 12 atoms in size, whereas the standard disc drive needs roughly a million atoms per bit. The caveat is that it must reside at the very low temperature of 10 Kelvin. The full study has been published in the journal Science. According to an interview by Reuters, a room temperature version is theoretically possible at 150 atoms. Is this the end of Moore’s Law? Can we even find a practical means to get to this design? What do you think?...
