Spin strong enough?

Spin is a very weak modulator of resistance, maybe a factor of two for STT MRAM, it doesn't seem to cut it as a switch.

Shielding would seem to be an issue if you are running switching currents nearby. Won't you get the natural magnetic effects interfeering with the electrons? Might be a silly question- just let me know...

You are right. All sorts of EMI interference will be a factor in systems that substitute spin-state for charge as their binary encoding, but first they have got to get the spintronic transistors actually working!
