Researchers proposed a new method of manufacturing "the smallest structures in electronics".
As perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) is expected to hit its physical density limit at about 1 Tb per square inch, we are hearing about new and innovative ways how a technology that is in its core more than 40 years old can get another extension.
A patent filed by Samsung describing a wireless power "communication system" indicates that we may be much closer to a wireless power smartphone than we generally anticipate.
There has been growing interest in DRAMs that do not lose their content when the power to them is cut.
Don't use your subscription to a cloud storage service for the claim that it is more environmentally friendly than storing your data at home.
Chevrolet's Spark minicar may not have been showered with positive reviews so far, and it may not exactly create the kind of enthusiasm it needs to succeed.
The idea of powering gadgets with fuel cells instead of glass is getting new traction as researchers have found a way to increase their rigidity, and make them more efficient and less expensive.
Few users may have ever reached the end of life of a flash drive, yet we know that mainstream drives can, realistically, not exceed 100,000 read/write cycles and many cheap flash drives are even rated well below that.
For the first time, researchers were able to build a system in which a single photon could be transmitted while all others were blocked.
Scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) demonstrated a way to rapidly accelerate ions over a short distance and bring them to a sudden stop. The researchers believe the discovery can be useful in future quantum computers.
IBM has been granted a patent for an exotic phase change memory (PCM) cell structure the allows the technology to retain its data retention characteristics at temperatures above 150 degrees Celsius (300 degrees Fahrenheit).
Researchers at the University of Cincinnati say they have developed a technology that would use rapid sound waves to counter sudden noises heard in a car.
The legal battle between Apple and Samsung turns out to be a treasure trove of information that reveals future products and strategies.
Seagate forecasts weakening shipments of hard drives and slight price erosion, while the company banks on new hybrid drives slated for release later this year.
Apple has filed a patent applications that describes documents such as spreadsheets, presentations, as well as image and text documents that can be edited, but do not need to be saved by the user.
Microsoft has been granted a video conferencing patent that leverages a home network as the data infrastructure and the TV as the display screen.
Advanced features have driven the average price of flat panel TVs to the highest level in more than two years, market research firm IHS reported.
A security researcher revealed a flaw in commonly used air traffic control software that would allow an attacker to create an unlimited number of phantom flights.
Researchers at the Berkeley Lab and the University of California (UC) Berkeley found that inexpensive semiconductors can be used to create photovoltaic devices via a gate field, as long as a certain geometric shape of the electrode is maintained.
Microsoft was just awarded a "virtual skywriting" patent that is sure to cause some controversy, given the company's outspoken stance of its research and to protect its work via patents and a rigid licensing policy.
