   Bendable nanotubes store bits
Researchers at Harvard University have exploited the mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes to build a tiny memory device that could be a predecessor to the building blocks of tomorrow's molecular computers. Those computers would not only be thousands of times faster than today's but also much cheaper. Full story
Protein-coated chip sniffs out bacteria
PDAs are already quite handy. In a few years they might also be able to save you from food poisoning.
