+ - It's now possible to print computer memory on paper->

Submitted by Caleb Garling
Caleb Garling (3651989) writes "Paper is cheap, flexible, and widespread, making it a good candidate as a substrate, but one of the issues with printing conductive materials to paper is one of the reasons paper works so well for ink: absorption. Being porous and uneven is an unwanted quality when trying to lay down the very precise structures necessary for electronics.

To get around this, principal researcher Der-Hsien Lien and team first coated the paper in a layer of carbon. Their aim was to make a type of resistive random access memory (RRAM), where a voltage is applied across a layer of insulator via an electrode. Each "bit" on the paper would be an insulator sandwiched by two electrodes with a state of 1 or 0."

Submitted by Gamoid
Gamoid (656769) writes "This past school year, the Coachella Valley Unified School District gave out 20,000 iPads to every single student. The good news is that kids love them, and only 6 of them got stolen or went missing. The bad news is, these iPads are sucking so much bandwidth that it's keeping neighboring school districts from getting online. Here's why the CVUSD is considering becoming its own ISP."
