There is no end to the data that is being produced every single day all over the planet. From selfies to controversial art to international documents of utmost secrecy, to name a few -the data being produced and stored regularly is equivalent to the space on 10 milliion Blue-ray discs.
As data production continues to increase exponentially, there also arises an urgent need to find a way to store all of it. However, it looks like the University of Southampton may have just found the solution. A team of researchers at the university have developed a tiny 5-dimensional (5D) disc capable of storing 360 terabytes of data over 13.8 billion years. Yes, they like their numbers [...]

Linköping University’s Laboratory of Organic Electronics in Sweden has developed a type of power paper that is capable of storing as much as 1 F of electricity in a single sheet which is 15 cms in diameter and the fraction of a millimetre in thickness. It is possible to charge the paper hundreds of times, with each charge lasting not more than a couple of seconds.
The paper requires nothing more than renewable cellulose and an easily available polymer as its components. The polymer-cellulose material simultaneously conducts both ions and electrons, thereby setting a world record with this kind of conduction activity. This attribute of the material also allows it to have [...]
So you have a 16 GB iPhone and you don’t really know why. You just do. Or you might be planning to go for the new iPhone 6s series, but you’re not sure whether a 16 GB storage is worth it. Well, even we don’t know why Apple hasn’t already killed off the 16 GB variant. But the fact is that they haven’t and there are people around the world who have to deal with living with a 16 GB iPhone.
Moreover, it’s not really 16 GB, is it? It’s actually about 10 GB as Apple’s OS and pre-loaded apps like iBooks, Photo Booth and others eat up about one-third of your storage. So, considering all that, close to 10 GB is what you’re left [...]

Google’s next flagship phablet is unlikely to feature a MicroSD card slot. The three variants will be separated by a price difference of [...]

We’re all waiting for Apple to release its upcoming iPhone 6s and 6s plus on the 9th of September at its event. There have been a bunch of rumours floating around, about the two devices and the latest one is that a memo that was being passed around at KGI Securities has been leaked, and suggests that the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will be arriving with the same storage options as the current generation – 16GB, 64GB and 128GB.
Furthermore, the iPhone camera, which is already pretty cool, is going to be upgraded to wait-for-it 12 megapixels. This means that the new iPhone will be able to capture 4k videos and will thus catch up with perhaps, the latest Sony [...]
