Sure, work with HP on the Magnetic-resistive MRAM by funding them to a stake. In the mean time provide an linear function in the phone to scan for leaky or dead cells. After all flash is a linear storage component. When the Error detection circuit starts to see failures then swap the nand card, make the Nand removable. I remember when flash was being used as an audio delay device.

I should know better than to write at 11:30 pm! I get wordy. Any insights on memory?

Good thing this an electronic media so wood resources aren't wasted with throw-away text like: "Many of these issues have been known for years. Still others have just suffered. The memory problems not only haunt RIM, but also Apple, Google, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung and other cell-phone makers." Let's ignore the suffered/surfaced typo. Which issues in the article "just surfaced?"

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
