2012 was an interesting year for technology, as we saw several new innovations (Windows 8/iPhone 5) as well as on-going feuds (Apple vs. Samsung). Tell us what you think was the biggest technology story of 2012.

    Very hard to say. For example, one that caught my attention was from the IEEE 2012 IEDM Technical Program. During Session 9: 'Characterization, Reliability, and Yield - Memory Reliability Challenges' was presentation 9.1  "Radically Extending the Cycling Endurance of Flash Memory (to > 100M Cycles) by Using Built-in Thermal Annealing to Self-heal the Stress-Induced Damage". It was a demonstration of what appears to be a viable, practical method of extending flash memory read/write cycles from a maximum of 10,000 to over 100,000,000 with no loss. (Apparently, maximum cycles might be much more, but testing simply ran out of time.) Some relatively minor technology change like that can radically change things without anyone anticipating the impact. -- Tom
