[Digg] Phase-change NVRAM shipping soon.


Samsung Electronics Co. on Monday unveiled a new type of memory chip that it said will allow digital devices to work faster by saving new data more quickly. The phase-change random access memory, or PRAM, chip is nonvolatile, meaning it will retain data even when an electronic device is turned off, and is about 30 times faster than conventional flash memory, Samsung said. It is expected to be available in 2008, Samsung said. A 512-megabit prototype PRAM device was unveiled at a news conference in Seoul on Monday.

Sudo Pre-Order this t-shirt!


This is the shirt of Comic #149, which is so far the most widely-distributed comic I've ever done. It was spotted on the walls at Amazon headquarters and on some of the bigger blags. And now, as per your many email requests, here it is on a shirt!

(Though I like the "Just shy, not antisocial - You can talk to me." shirt better...)
