Memory Stored in Living Cells

Data stored in live neurons

A couple of uninformed extrapolations on what this could mean. First, I've always wondered if technology would permit us to put certain "knowledge chips" into our brains. As in:

Customer: "I'm going to Mexico next month. Can I get a Spanish language chip imbedded in my head?"

Surgeon: "Certainly! Will next Tuesday at 10 work?"

Dispense with three years of school; just implant the knowledge in your brain.

Of course, the drawback is this. When your computer has a virus...it wouldn't be malicious technical programming. It would actually be a physical ailment!
