Fascinating! Looks like the MRAM chip is still at a small capacity (4 Mb). 
I gather that endurance means information "does not degrade over time". 
Flash memory is already pretty quick on the draw. So "SSD" is barely out of 
the chute, and along comes "MRAM". You gotta love it! If these items live 
up to their promise, we all should be in store for some pretty amazing 
devices that will directly affect sound recording.
