Data Transfer Has A Speed Limit

Despite the infinite climb data speeds seem to be making, scientists at Stanford say we’ll eventually hit a barrier due to the inability to keep the data stable after a certain transfer speed. But no worries just yet; the watermark they’ve set is still 1,000 times faster than what we have now. Apparently the scientists confirmed this problem by firing up the particle accelerator at Stanford University and blasting electrons at a piece of the magnetic material used to store computer data
