Magnetic Tape Gets A Boost

Earlier this week, MIT’s Technology Review published a story on a new magnetic tape material which, combined with a novel tape-reading technology, can produce data storage capacities of 35 Tb per cartridge – over 40 times higher than current tape storage systems. The research was conducted at IBM’S Zurich Research Labs in Switzerland, in conjunction […]

You may recall an article I wrote late last year on Correlated Magnetics Research, a company from Alabama who has created and produced what they were calling “programmable” magnets. Since then, I’ve had the chance to play with a number of their prototypes.  I had initially been a little confused as to what the technology […]
