Hewlett-Packard claimed this week that technology its researchers have developed may replace the fundamental building block of computers and electronics for the past half-century -- the transistor. Researchers with HP's Quantum Science Research (QSR) group -- who published a paper on the new technology in the most recent Journal of Applied Physics -- built a transistor alternative known as a "crossbar latch." The molecular-sized device is capable of providing signal restoration and inversion processes without the need for transistors.
This is not about PC, Laptop or big chunk of server. HP always had had an amaizing researcher team and I kind of feel that Mr. Reynold (at Gartner) minimized in my opinion; this breakthrough.
Yes is under lot of research, but HP probe the concept publicaly!!! before anyone.
Just because wasn't invented or developed by IBM doesn't mean is wrong. (For those who doesn't know founder of Gartner Group is an ex-IBM employee)
