Swiss researchers have developed a new type of 'Racetrack' memory that's 100,000 times faster than even the fastest of today's hard drives. It's efficient and durable, but the best news is that it could be in your computer by 2015.
Apple has a knack for taking concepts that weren't exactly blockbusters and knocking them out of the park. The iPad wasn't the first tablet on the block, for instance, but now it's to tablets what the iPod is to the MP3 player. Can Apple do the same to all-in-one, multi-touch computers?
