Data Storage Pioneer Wins Millennium Technology Prize

bra1n Re:Is racetrack memory even persistent? (40 comments)

I understand how it might be a viable substitute for ram, but I'm not sure if it's persistent like flash storage. Which would make it an abysmal substitute for hard drives.

The first line in the linked wikipedia page says its non-volatile, so it should be persistent.

Comcast Donates Heavily To Defeat Mayor Who Is Bringing Gigabit Fiber To Seattle

bra1n From the cable provider's perspective (356 comments)

It's public tax payer money being spent to combat a private company. A company that made the investment in infrastructure and in hiring local people. There really needs to be competition. Maybe deregulation of the incumbant's fiber/coax needs to happen. When it happened to the telcos and all the CLECs popped up it didn't drive the ILECs out of business. It just doesn't seem "fair" to make the incumbant compete against the tax payers.
