Magnetoelectrics could advance computer memory, ending reliance on 1s and 0s

Magnetoelectrics could advance computer memory, ending reliance on 1s and 0s | future IT | Scoop.it

Generally, hardware upgrades incrementally — processors slowly gain more cores, graphics cards slowly become more powerful, and storage devices slowly gain more capacity. Hardware rarely upgrades with a significant leap, jumping from one form to another that is so significantly upgraded that it barely resembles what came before it. These leaps do happen though — in just a matter of a few years dumbphones evolved into smartphones and a great deal of laptops become super slim tablets. Now, utilizing a new type of magnetoelectric material, computer memory may take that significant leap.

I Want My M-WiFi | Wireless Networking | TechNewsWorld

WiFi blanketing entire communities was a turn-of-the-century dream that failed to materialize, with a few exceptions, but it's now being resurrected. "Simply put, carriers need WiFi," said Steve Hratko, Ruckus' director of carrier marketing. LTE alone won't be able to handle the insatiable appetite for more capacity, as the proliferation of mobile devices worldwide, like smartphones and tablets, continues to grow at a rapid pace."

 

Looking for an Internet connection when out and about may soon become a lot easier. There's been an uptick in public WiFi availability.

 

Recent public WiFi launches include Google's free WiFi project in New York City, starting with parts of Chelsea. London's tube network went hot in 2012 with 92 underground stations WiFi-enabled; Virgin Media is connecting a further 28 stations by the end of March, 2013. Also, Thailand is expanding Bangkok's current 200,000 public WiFi hot spots to the rest of the country over the next year.

 

It was understandable to see investment in municipal and outdoor wireless Internet projects during the days of slow mobile Internet in the naughties, but with modern mobile networks coming online -- like LTE and other fast-ish technologies -- why are we seeing this continued interest in public WiFi?

 

Were lessons not learned in the mid-to-late 2000s when we saw some expensive municipal WiFi failures? WiFi projects collapsed then for reasons related to lack of demand, cost and unsuitable technology. Today however, data demand has exploded due to the smartphone revolution, and WiFi technology is better.
