Is this really what you think about storage?
You might have noticed that Samsung is making 3D NAND chips right now, and Toshiba and SanDisk are joint funding a 3D NAND fab in Japan. Martin Fink (HP CTO) has recently said that memristor DIMMs will be launched in 2016 and be in full production by 2018. So I would say that 3D NAND just won. If there was ever a race between them. Which there certainly hasn't been for at least a year.
BTW - NAND in it's current design is page access memory and memristor seems to be word (byte) access so can replace main memory. So they aren't really competing for the same use anyway - one is a disk replacement and the other is non-volatile main memory.
You should be interested in this stuff. For example a switch to non-volatile main memory will allow complete change in the way data is used. Think ccNUMA but accross a whole data centre (or wider).
It is a hugely interesting time in the world of storage at the moment. Articles like this do a massive disservice to a vibrant and fascinating area of IT, and one that should be supported by this esteemed organ.
