Processors and RAM are fixed entities in a PC, but right from day one data is incessantly eating away at your storage space. And it's not just your data (which you can manage) but endless gigabytes of temp files and cached junk.
Non-volatile RAM that retains data when a device is switched off could deliver faster computers, lower energy consumption and cloud data storage.
Teradata Intelligent Memory combines RAM and disk for high-performance big data without the extreme requirement of exclusive in-memory operation.
I've had so many emails overnight about a story over on ComputerWorld citing data collected by Devil Mountain Software's community-based XPnet claiming that some 86% of Windows 7 machines being monitored are regularly consuming 90-95% of the system RAM that I'm forced from silence to comment.
I thoroughly enjoy my Fujitsu U810 UMPC because it gives me a full computer in a 1.5 pound package that runs for at least 4 hours with a single battery and wireless connectivity. Fujitsu just announced the availability of a model with integrated AT&T Broadband (wireless) data support. These new models start at US$1,299 and also have a bump in the hard drive from 40GB to 60GB. Unfortunately, the RAM hasn't been bumped to 2GB like I was hoping for and still remain at 1GB.

Darla Mack is one lucky woman and gets lots of opportunities to check out the latest and greatest Nokia S60 devices. This time she has the Nokia N95-3 device in her hands that has US 3G support (AT&T network), more RAM (about 80 MB vs 20 MB free on the N95) and a larger battery. Darla has a first look at the battery life (comparing non-3G devices) and the new battery appears to significantly increase the run time of the device. The faster data network will require more power and you may not see a huge difference in battery life if you are using the 3G network. While the 3G network support is nice (I won't see it on T-Mobile though), I am personally more excited about the much greater RAM and battery capacities.
As I just mentioned a couple of days ago I keep going back to the Nokia N95 when I want to carry around a solid phone and it actually has my T-Mobile SIM in it with no data connectivity. As stated in the Nokia press release, the Nokia N95 was just voted 'the European Media Phone of the Year 2007-2008' by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), Europe's leading association for consumer electronics. In Europe, and elsewhere outside the U.S., the N95 actually works on 3G networks so those users get an even better experience than we do with our EDGE-enabled N95 devices. The judging panel cited the N95s feature set like the integrated GPS receiver, 5 megapixel camera, and 30 fps video capture capabilities. The two issues I would like to see improved to make the N95 an even better device are the low RAM and low battery capacity.

Security specialist Symantec has warned businesses over an increasing trend for criminals to use "parasitic storage" on networks of compromised systems.While botnets -- illegal networks of PCs infected with remote software by hackers -- are used mainly for sending spam, criminals are increasingly storing sensitive or illegal data in distributed environments, the security company told our sister site ZDNet UK on Tuesday.
According to data released by two IT marketing firms (iSuppli and DRAMeXchange), quad-core CPUs and DDR3 RAM will go mainstream - eventually. We'll have to wait until 2009 until we start seeing these high-power components being used in everyday PCs.
A prototype fusion memory, OneDRAM, can move data up to five times faster than conventional memory, company claims
You can never have enough RAM, your CPU can never be too fast, and your hard drives can't be too big. Of the three though, it's my demand for hard drive space that's been pushed the hardest over the last couple of years. It's great to have bags of RAM and a fast CPU, but that doesn't mean anything if you don't have the free drive space to install and save data to.
Nine companies announced on Thursday the formation of an industry group to increase the awareness and use of the DVD-RAM format.

Intersil announced Wednesday that its laser diode design will be used in a new Hitachi-LG Data Storage disk drive, the GSA-4040B, which will support multiple DVD and CD recordable and rewritable formats. The Hitachi-LG drive will be available in June and will support DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, CD-R and CD-RW formats.
The company has been showing off a new Loox PDA at the CeBit trade show this week. It announced plans Wednesday to begin selling the Pocket Loox, which is based on Microsoft's Pocket PC 2002 software, in the United States this May for $599. It will also sell the device in Europe and Japan. The 5.9-ounce Loox incorporates Intel's new PXA250 Xscale processor along with 32MB of ROM (read-only memory) for application storage and 64MB of RAM for data. It will also offer a 3.5-inch color touch screen display and handwriting-recognition software. A pair of Compaq Flash and Secure Digital slots will allow for add-ons such as wireless modems. The PDA (personal digital assistant) will operate for about 15 hours on a single charge of its built-in battery. An optional add-on battery can extend battery life up to 24 hours, the company said. --John Spooner, Special to ZDNet News
