DailyDirt: Smaller, Better, Faster Wireless

www.techdirt.com
The term wireless is a bit strange because it classifies a whole range of modern technology by the lack of a wire. Cordless technologies are getting better all the time, but the reliability and transfer speeds of wires are still superior in many ways. Thankfully, there are plenty of folks...

Laser-switched magnetic storage is 1,000 times faster than current hard drives

www.extremetech.com
Hold onto your hats: An international team of scientists working in England, Russia, Switzerland, and the Netherlands have completely rewritten the rules of magnetic storage. Instead of switching a magnetic region using a magnetic field (like a hard drive head), the researchers have managed to switch a ferrimagnetic nanoisland using...

A gigabit is not enough. New research takes us to 400Gbps.

gigaom.com
Researchers at Alcatel-Lucent’s Bell Labs have devised a new way to transmit data super-fast over fiber cables: using “twin waves” of information rather than just one and them bringing them together when they arrive at their destination. The result cut down on signal distortion and led to rates of 400...
