A flexible, transparent memory chip created by researchers at Rice University.

New memory chips that are transparent, flexible enough to be folded like a sheet of paper, shrug off 1,000-degree Fahrenheit temperatures — twice as hot as the max in a kitchen oven — and survive other hostile conditions could usher in the development of next-generation flash-competitive memory for tomorrow’s keychain drives, cell phones and computers, a scientist reported March 27…

Stale Water Is Downside To Water Conservation And May Offset Benefits

Stale Water Is Downside To Water Conservation And May Offset Benefits 

A study out from the American Chemical Society says you should run your water for a while before using it – which goes against everything people say about wasting water – and they blame all the reduced-flush toilets, low-flow showerheads and other water-saving green technologies that’s making our water “stale” while it sits in our pipes.
