HP Announces Tiny Wireless Memory Chip

Posted in Geek, News at 9:48 am by divinity

Hewlett-Packard researchers have developed a memory chip with wireless networking capabilities that is roughly the same size as a grain of rice, the company said Monday.

Prototypes of the Memory Spot chip developed by HP Labs contain 256 kilobits to 4 megabits of memory and can transfer data wirelessly at speeds up to 10Mbps. There are eight bits in a byte. This amount of storage allows the chips to hold a short video clip, digital pictures or “dozens of pages” of text, HP said, adding that the chips do not require a battery.

This just makes me go “wow.”  I’m continuously brought back to the idea of always having a computer on your person.  To be able to tap into the vast amount of knowledge and resources that is the internet would be amazing to have.  I already have a daily taste of it with my sidekick, but even that has its issues with signal and slow loading webpages.  It’s still great to be able to pull up information on just about anything at a moment’s notice though.

Ridiculous.. I don’t think gauged ears or grills are any more distracting than the latest shirt or pants. Let the kids explore themselves and their self-expression.  They’ll have plenty of time in life to learn how to “fit into the workplace” or they’ll create their own workplace.  It is not the school’s job to mold the children into what they think they should be.  It is the school’s job to provide the opportunity for education, it’s up to the kids (with the guidance of parents) to take advantage of that opportunity.

NBC will buy Tribe.net

I found Tribe again a few months ago and have spent a lot of time on there meeting really interesting people.  Compared to the other social networking sites it seems to have a lot more substance, more real people, less spam, and a lot more interesting dicussion.  Of course the fact that it’s overrun by Burners doesn’t hurt. 🙂  If you want to add me, here I am.

Josh Ellis, a net journalist, wrote a great peace about his visit to the site of the first atomic test, the Los Alamos/Trinity Test Site .  A well written piece about some of the history, and the magnitude of what happened early one morning in 1945.
