Memory and Molecules
I am not a physicist, so I have no idea how memory chips work. For example, I have a 32gb capacity Compact Flash card, a 32gb capacity SDHC card, and a 32gb micro SD card. The first is the size of a matchbook, the last the size of my thumbnail. How is this possible? I know technology is shrinking, but certainly physics must come into play here eventually. When should we expect the 32gb nano-card that is the size of the head of a pin?
I suppose when it arrives, we will at long last at least be able to answer the question, "How many images of angels will fit on the head of a pin?" Answer: roughly, 8,000 — depending on the JPG compression ratio.
