 Just a few weeks ago there was a news story that said that DRAM and FLASH pricing was in decline due to over supply, as the result of slower than anticipated sales of phones/PC's/Tablets. So, what is the true state of supply for Flash/Dram??

To me it looks like it is still too early to call a winner in this market. It is very tempting to draw a straight line in terms of SSD's replacing traditional spinning mass storage, but there are architectural shifts still happening in the computing market. At a minimum I can see solid state devices moving off of SATA and other traditional interfaces and onto ones that better support them. I also expect even more integration of PC components rather than the traditional mix-and-match component architecture we have had for so long. In that situation it's hard to tell who might come out on top.

Calling OCZ a "strong survivor" damages the credibility of this commentary in all other respects.  It is very questionable whether they remain solvent.

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.
