Apologies, just searced again, and seen there is another thread on this.
Please ignore.

From Science Daily
Link Science Daily


Move over, silicon—it may be time to give the Valley a new name. Physicists at the Department of Energy's (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have confirmed the existence of a type of material that could one day provide dramatically faster, more efficient computer chips.

Recently-predicted and much-sought, the material allows electrons on its surface to travel with no loss of energy at room temperatures and can be fabricated using existing semiconductor technologies. Such material could provide a leap in microchip speeds, and even become the bedrock of an entirely new kind of computing industry based on spintronics, the next evolution of electronics.




Thought this was quite interesting, and searched to see if it had been posted but couldnt find it....does this mean a new generation of ultra fast computers?

Bismuth is looking like a better investment everyday.

I'd look for new technology companies who are purchasing it or developing facilities to produce their own crystals. If that company is also buying gold - well then that's even better.
