Your future hard drive might be grown with magnetic bacteria
In the future, ultra-high-density non-volatile storage — such as hard drives — could be grown using magnetic bacteria.
This breakthrough, shepherded by researchers from the University of Leeds in the UK and the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, relies on certain strains of bacteria that ingest iron, which is then converted into magnetite (iron II, III oxide), the most magnetic naturally occurring mineral on Earth. These microbes, by following the Earth’s magnetic field, use this built-in magnet to navigate.

Magnetic Window Edge Anyone who is familiar with the Gnome Desktop on Ubuntu Linux should have noticed a certain characteristic about the windows. When a window is moved sufficiently close to another window, to any task-bar, or to the edge of the screen, the edge of the active window snaps to the other object and...
