Anonymous i should say thats a great invention especially the 10ns speed and ability to work on low power better stil store data when power is out thats awesome especially for users in countries like uganda where power is not stable, My concern though is with all these firms joinin the battle for patents is going to ruin ReRam's usage as new storages will come up to compete with it. I dont see Toshiba or HP or even Dell sitting and not inventing a simillar storage in case they lose the patents.

Like NAND, though, it's likely going to take a few years of development before they have it in a marketable form, and I think the company's that started earlier like Toshiba (and maybe Micron, now that they have Elpida's IP and expertise) are going to have a pretty significant advantage.
