Where can I download this new RAM?

RAM was always a transient piece of equipment to compensate for the fact that memory storage and extraction is painfully slow using hard drives and flash memory. NAND has the long-term storage capabilities and capacity of a hard drive while having the bandwidth capabilities of RAM. I view it as a replacement for flash storage that effectively makes RAM obsolete.

The thing is that there never used to be a memory that did the whole job, you either had (relatively) Large but slow read/write storage (tapes, floppies, platters, etc) which would make a system crawl like molasses, or RAM which worked pretty fast but had the memory capacity of a goldfish (along with memory errors, which with only a few kb in memory meant space dried up very fast if you had even a single bool sized memory leak). Having both let you sort of have the best of both worlds but required architecture and additional hardware of essentially 2 systems.
We haven't until now (or at least if the tech proves functional) had something that does both. We've had something like racetrack memory but that i don't think managed to go anywhere. So this looks like a MAJOR boost to memory everywhere!
I hope this isn't a deadend tech and we actually get to use this soon!

I do know about it (electrical and computer science degree). I just watched it again. It would appear that this new technology is indeed non-volatile, meaning it could be used for hard disks as well. Amazing. I just bought my 1TB SSD drive in January. Looks like I'll have to upgrade again, soon.

Not sure if it's the same guys, but soon (not sure when) there should be 10TB SSDs out for sale

and learn German or Dutch or Swedish or Danish and come study in Europe for free! Although this day and age many courses are taught in English - but they'll want you to learn the local language as well.
Imperial College in London is one of the best, along with King's College, if you just want English-speaking country, but don't limit yourself. Learning a second or third language in the country itself is such a rewarding experience and can really help your IQ and overall intelligence.
I forgot CalTech and Stanford in the US as well.

I went to WPI (Worcester Polytechnic Institute). I didn't prepare like I should have (long story for another time) but I suggest AP physics, AP calculus, teaching yourself programming and maybe even read upon electronics a bit. The more comfortable you are with technology and math and all the complicated shit beforehand, the easier it will be to understand the complex concepts that await you. And AP tests can let you test out of the earlier math/physics courses.
For EE/ECE, I recommend: WPI, RPI, RIT, Penn State, Georgia Tech, UCLA. You can try for MIT, but you have like a < 0,02% chance to get it. You basically need to go to prep school or pass a certified genius test or be super duper wealthy and bribe someone. I really liked WPI because you get a lot of hands-on experience in labs and shit that most other universities don't do. They also force you to become a well-rounded person by making you do some humanities stuff and they highly encourage you to travel abroad for a quadramester (they do quadramesters and not trimesters). They do intense 8-week quadramesters where you only take three courses so you can really concentrate on the material and progress quickly. They also don't do Dean's list or encourage competition. You're all in it together to learn and become a good engineer.
But that's just my two cents.
