Mark Pesce has the latest on new tech development that could signal major improvements for our hardware.

He discusses a new kind of 'air' transistor that could evade the end of Moore's Law. (Moore's law is the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles about every two years).

Mark says that might also may help us avoid 'Rowhammer' - which is a way to attack a computer's memory by flipping bits back and forth.
