Texts, like emails, can be responded to at your leisure.

Then why do people feel the need to respond instantly to a text? Especially during family dinner or a face-to-face conversation? It's not as though "Pub tonight?" requires an instant reply. If it was an emergency the person on the other end would hopefully call.

New Speed Record For Magnetic Memory 26

Posted by timothy
from the think-fast dept.
Iddo Genuth writes "An experiment performed at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Germany has uncovered that a spin-torque switching of a nanomagnet is as fast as what is permitted according to the fundamental laws of physics' limit. This method of switching, also named ballistic switching, could allow for increased speeds in future non-volatile magnetic memories."
