Jargon Watch

Super Southerner - Someone from the North of England who has grown to appreciate the benefits of living in the South. Signs include:
  • Going back up North and repeatedly complaining about the weather
  • Boring Northern friends about how can't get decent (sushi/bagels/coffee etc) outside London
  • You will no longer speak to some random stranger on the tube who says hello

- Non-volatile random access memory. The term was coined by Nantero, a company pioneering the use of carbon nano-tubes to make computer memory and integrated circuits.

The company is working with LSI Logic to commercialise their technology. It has immediate applications in space since it is resistant to cosmic radiation. Source: Nature Online (October 4, 2005 - Nano-tubes refine computer memory).
