Flash Memory: Caveat Emptor
The phrase "caveat emptor" has been thrown around Hackaday lately and it seemed like a good phrase to keep using. Perhaps it has been around awhile, and I only recently noticed it. It roughly translates from Latin as "buyer beware." Flash memory in our new tech-toys may not be as fresh as the rest of the device. A university group developed a way to test flash memory's age with high accuracy. The availability of the tool wasn't part of the release, but the method was described so hopefully it will be in the hands of buyer soon.

After being visible for a bit, this article was promoted to a featured article. Not too shabby.
