Better Memories

WHEN IT COMES TO computing, you can never have too much memory. That's the kind of thinking that Intel's banking on with its new StrataFlash memory chip, which can store twice as much information as the previous generation of chips. That may make for smaller and smarter cell phones, personal computers, digital cameras and any other electronic device that must store data even after it's turned off. Thanks to fierce competition from rival manufacturers, the cost of Intel's 64-megabyte memory chip may be as low as $29.90. That's an easy price to pay for progress when compared with 8-megabyte chips that only last year sold for about $32. Better get ready for more products with ""Intel inside.''
