Yeah, that was thirty years ago. Every year there's an announcement of some new memory technology that's going to revolutionize the computer industry. The last time I checked we're all still using DRAM or Flash, we still need lots of batteries, and we still have to reboot after powering down. Whatever happened to MRAM and half a dozen other pretenders?

Italy Floats Official Permission Requirement for Web Video Uploads 131

An anonymous reader writes with some bad news from Italy, noting that new rules proposed there would "require people who upload videos onto the Internet to obtain authorization from the Communications Ministry similar to that required by television broadcasters, drastically reducing freedom to communicate over the Web." Understandably, some say such controls represent a conflict of interest for Silvio Berlusconi, "who exercises political control over the state broadcaster RAI in his role as prime minister and is also the owner of Italy's largest private broadcaster, Mediaset."
