Researchers at IBM now know how long a single atom can “remember” its state. The events that take place inside of atoms occur at speeds that are normally much too fast to capture. Now researchers at IBM’s Almaden Research Center have developed a technique that lets them watch this atomic action with unprecedented resolution”

I guess they forgot to tell old Werner Heisenberg about this … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncertainty_principle
I’m soooo out of my depth here, but they way i’m picturing this working is replicating that magnetic state surrounding an atoms core and not actually predicting the definite position of all its innards.
