I remember this! It was a site for the American Computer Corp and the tech was a ``Transfer Capacitor``. i was very fascinated with the report at
the time. It went something like this. This guy got ahold of some notebooks from Bell Labs that talked about this T-Cap. It was the size of a poker
chip, ran at 2 Thz, had a HD capacity of 12 Terra Bytes i believe, used almost no energy, and had no moving parts. It worked on the principle of data
transfer through Electon flow. The tech stemmed from back engineered alien tech from Roswell and other crashes.
At that time Vacuum tubes were being used and Bell Labs were given the go ahead to ``create`` the transistor. I have an electronics degree and was
curious in school in 1985 how they made the leap from tubes to ``doping`` silicon with arsenic to create a device with gates that would mimic the
tube. The guy at ACC who had these notebooks said that he knew the guy at Bell who got the credit for the transistor discovery and he said as I
recall that there was NO WAY this guy at Bell Labs could have come up with this on his own, and it was part of a Govt plan to introduce alien tech
into the market for profit.
I remember talking with my cousins about investing inthis tech when it hit market, but it never did. Chips and HD just got a little better each
generation. Other discoveries included Kevlar, night vision, and fiber optics.
I find the story believable and it would explain why Jobs left Apple to start Next. Interesting read OP.
