Submission + - Intel and Micron announce "Breakthrough Memory Technology"->

jcr writes: In production now, sampling later this year: non-volatile, ten times the density of NAND flash, and up to 1000x the speed. From the press release:

"For decades, the industry has searched for ways to reduce the lag time between the processor and data to allow much faster analysis," said Rob Crooke, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group. "This new class of non-volatile memory achieves this goal and brings game-changing performance to memory and storage solutions."

"One of the most significant hurdles in modern computing is the time it takes the processor to reach data on long-term storage," said Mark Adams, president of Micron. "This new class of non-volatile memory is a revolutionary technology that allows for quick access to enormous data sets and enables entirely new applications."

Honestly, OSX is the worst offender of the lot.

I use my computer to do work, not surf the net and look at pictures of cats.

Working with OSX is like working on your car in your garage, and you've got all the tools you need spread out within arms reach so you can quickly grab them as you need them.

Only, you have an obsessive compulsive spouse who absolutely NEEDS everything to look clean and pretty in case some third party is watching, and every time you set down a tool and pick up another one, she picks it up off the floor and puts it away.

It's not a technical problem. It's a problem of faulty design. They let a bunch of graphic designers turn my goddamned hammer into a flower, and it's very pretty, but I can't drive a nail with it, and, somehow, they convinced EVERY manufacturer of hammers to follow in their footsteps, so I'm forced to look for a brick, because ALL the tools I relied on to do my job are BROKEN.

I just want my ugly, greasy toolbox back, but no one makes them any more.
