Most Expensive Dog Sells for Over One Million Dollars

Tibetan Mastiffs are huge and fierce guard dogs that have stood watch over nomad camps and monasteries on the Tibetan plateau for centuries.

More recently, however, they have become highly-prized status symbols for China’s new rich. The dogs are thought to be a pure “Chinese” breed and they are rarely found outside Tibet, giving them an exclusivity that other breeds cannot match.

Accordingly, prices have risen from around 5,000 yuan a puppy five years ago to the hundreds of thousands and even millions.

Advances in Memory Technology Could Lead to Mobile Phones Lasting for Weeks on a Single Charge

University of Illinois engineers have developed a form of ultra-low-power non-volatile memory could someday provide consumers with hand-held devices that go without recharging for weeks or even months.

The research is based on an existing technology known as phase-change random access memory, or just phase change memory (PCM). However, instead of using metal wires as resisters, the research team used carbon nanotubes that are 10,000 times thinner than a human hair and that require far less power than standard PCM.
