Samsung Electronics Co announced yesterday that it has created the world’s first 30nm-class 64Gb NAND chip.
The well advanced 64-gigabit NAND flash memory chip relies on a high quality process technology operated by circuit elements that are only 30 nanometers wide.
In case you were sleeping in class, a nanometer is one-billionth of a meter; for example a human hair is about 80,000 nanometers across.
Samsung released a statement saying: “The flash memory device represents a major leap forward in the move to higher density flash storage solutions at a time of exploding demand for flash as the main storage medium in computing and digital applications,”
Flash memory chips are found in digital music gadgets, digital cameras and mobile phones.
The chips can memorize data even when the appliances are out of function.
The bad news is that Samsung will only start production of the chip in 2009.The good news is that you get to enjoy the pictures of the hot Koreans babes promoting it.

American workers are overweight ,and it’s your boss’ fault by the way.
According to The Marlin Company’s newly-published 2007 workplace poll done by Harris Interactive:
just 36% of workers in 2004 said their company was “very active” or “somewhat active” in offering information about exercise and healthy eating, 22% fewer than in 2007. The number of employees whose companies were “not at all” or “not very active” has dropped from 63% in 2004 to 41% in 2007. Meanwhile, it seems that companies have not made the same strides to discourage junk food consumption. In the 2004 survey, 84% of workers whose companies had vending machines said their workplace vending machines were stocked with snacks, such as potato chips, cookies, and candy bars, a difference of just 9% over 2007.
