Last week I read in Computer Sweden about IBM's MRAM (magnetic) technology
which they have developed for 30 years and now may be ready for serious
use. Does anyone of the RAM experts have anything to say about this,
although it is not likely we'll see a MRAM-powered C64 clone?

One of its benefits was the ability to retain the information even after
power-down, so many computers would not need to read back all the
information when it boots up again[1]. Thus future computers will have
a quicker boot sequence. Where did I hear that before? Oh yes, recent
versions of Microsoft Windows.

question yourself before expression your answer or opinion. Also you don't
have the option to trim away excess parts of the previous message when you
