That company is Crossbar, a company in the memory chip business and boy-oh, boy is this one company to remember. Crossbar has created a new and unique memory chip that blows everything else out of the water and one that could give Apple devices huge competitive advantages over its competition.
For one thing Crossbar's new non-volatile memory technology chips can pack a whopping terabyte of data in the size of a bloody postage stamp! Not only that but its stackable so you could have oodles of memory in a small fraction of the space than current technologies can.
Another mind-blowing plus with Crossbar's technology is that it writes 20x faster than present chips, and what's more it is also some 10x more stable while also consuming some 10x less energy in the process!
SeekingAlpha points out that:
Well that technology is actually here, it is called Resistive Random Access Memory "RRAM," and it is being developed by a private company called Crossbar, Inc. (sorry no ticker). The thesis for this article is Apple (AAPL) should buy Crossbar Inc. and secure the technology to drive increased demand and improved margins around Apple's iPads, iPhones, and iPods and to keep it out of its competitors' hands.
In conclusion, any Apple acquisition of Crossbar would give it immediate benefits that no other company could hope to match and that could easily give iPhones, iPads and MacBooks the ability to run faster, longer and better than anything else in the market, so are you listening Tim?
And that's my 2 cents 4 this Wednesday, December 04, 2013
