Low power memory from nanotubes by Katherine Bourzac [Technology review] via [Kurzweil]

So one of the biggest problems with our emerging mobile technology is finding energy efficient nonvolatile memory. That is memory that continues to hold information even after the power is turned off. The problem is that writing to standard flash memory takes up a proportionally large amount of energy but flash memory is also some of our smallest memory to date. Carbon Nanotubes, when combined with a new type of memory called phase-change memory, may be the key to overcoming this obstacle.
