JEDEX "love fest" is on deck

The electronic rag the Inquirer, a self-described source of "news, reviews, facts and friction" (4/5/06), described the upcoming JEDEX convention April 18 & 19 in San Jose, CA as a "memory module love fest."

I double-checked the e-mail "Angie" of sent me with the line-up, no mention of love whatsoever.

The memory industry is rapidly evolving with DRAM, flash and module technologies undergoing dramatic changes to accommodate emerging system needs. There is only one place where you can address those changes head-on while networking with key industry leaders. The place is JEDEX.
Also, no mention of Rambus, Inc., either.

I am placing a bet that more than a couple memory executives will take the opportunity of inconspicuously chatting about Rambus and the tsunami of unflattering news that is about to cleanse the industry - triggered by nearly simultaneous earthquakes with epicenters in Judge Kramer's courtroom in San Francisco (anti-trust and the DOJ documents) and Judge Whyte's courtroom in San Jose, California (Hynix's infringement and the potential $100's of millions in damages being awarded Rambus & the all-important necessity of a license agreement).

Day of judgment for the memory industry draws near.
