Plants have an incredible knack for greening and flowering in sync with the seasons. We’ve been trying to figure out how they do it for years, and now, scientists have uncovered evidence that memory is involved.
Seagate’s new SSD will be very, very fast indeed. In fact, able to transfer data at up to 10GBps, it’s 6GBps faster than its previous best—and it’s claimed it will be the fastest in the world.
It’ll soon be time to toss out your dusty old memory cards. The SD Association has announced that the next generation of cards will support 360 degree, 3D, and 8K video, all at write speeds of up to an amazing 90MB per second.
I love high capacity things. So when Samsung announced it’s producing 256 GB flash storage that can be used in mobile devices, I swooned. The memory is two times faster than the previous generation of Universal Flash Storage (UFS) memory, meaning that phones will not only have greater storage capacities, but also…
Researchers from the University of Oxford have rewritten positive memories associated with cocaine in mice. The achievement could expand our understanding of memory, while demonstrating that it’s possible to neurologically reverse ingrained bad behavior, such as drug addiction.
Movies like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Inception suggest it may eventually be possible to erase, modify, or even implant memories into your brain. An upcoming episode of NOVA introduces viewers to this futuristic possibility and the scientists who are trying to make it happen.
New research shows the brain’s memory capacity is ten times greater than previous estimates. That means it’s in the petabyte range—which puts it close to World Wide Web territory.
Bummed that your latest cat pic didn’t get more traction on Instagram? Wondering how to make people remember your company’s logo first and foremost? A clever algorithm developed by MIT computer scientists may be able to help with a new online tool.
This may look like a regular RAM chip, but oh my it packs a punch. This is the latest chunk of RAM to roll off Samsung’s production line—and it squeezes a giddying 128GB into its svelte little frame.
When the iPhone 6S goes on sale, the cheapest model you can buy will be 16 gigabytes. Does it mean you should buy it? Hell no! Apple shouldn’t even sell it.
If you’ve made the jump and updated to Windows 10, you might have noticed something strange: the System process sometimes takes up an insane amount of RAM, possibly over 1GB. That’s actually not a bug, it’s a feature of Windows 10. Here’s how it works.
Methamphetamine is one of the nastiest drug addictions to overcome, in part because memories of the high are so powerful. But what if scientists could erase those drug-infused recollections? Researchers at the Scripps Research Institute in Florida have developed a drug that’s able to do just that in mice.
Think your solid state drive is blazing fast? Then prepare to be amazed by the new storage system being proposed by Intel and Micron, which promises speeds that are one thousand times faster than current NAND Flash memory.
As we’re all aware, weed makes us a bit forgetful. Say what? But a regular toke might also leave you more prone to remembering stuff that didn’t actually happen, according to new research published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry.
In this age of digital bloat, you might be surprised to hear that making a game as small as possible is an attractive challenge. But this tiny implementation of chess is just that—and takes up just 487 bytes on your hard drive.
We talk about memory a lot when we discuss gadgets, and it's no surprise: it's one of the biggest indicators of performance in the gadgets we all use. But rarely do we stop and think about how it works at the very basic level.
Scientists have long suspected that THC somehow affects the hippocampus region of the brain, the bit responsible for controlling short-term memory, but they have never been able to prove it. Turns out that's because they were looking at the wrong grey matter.
At the company's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, SanDisk announced today the imminent release of the single largest-capacity MicroSD card ever created. This tiny storage medium offers an unprecedented 128 GB of space, but don't expect it to come cheap.
The dirty little not-so-secret of smartphones is that you'll never get the full amount of memory marked on the case. Operating systems take up space! But different phones leave you with different amounts of storage. Here, from Which?, are the most and least generous.
