    I put this up because it just may be the biggest discovery since the transistor,seriously I thought that someone would've understood the awsome implications of this discovery.Even if they don't understand my sense of humour.

    Not really. It may be a more efficient storage system. However, it is way too preliminary to see what it can do.

    The technology of memistors, which is being developed, should be almost ready for prime time, while this new particle is being analyzed. Memistors (AKA, memristors) pave the way for 100 Terabytes or more of incredibly fast memory. Fast enough local RAM could be replace with direct access.

    So while this is indeed big news, it is way too soon for sweeping proclamations of what this means.
