Connectix has announced RAM Doubler, an extension that provides twice as much RAM for opening applications on any Mac II or greater Mac with at least 4 MB of RAM. Connectix says "RAM Doubler combines Connectix's award-winning memory management technology developed for MODE32 and Maxima with a new set of memory protocols that can typically triple the amount of information stored in a megabyte of RAM. The exact details of the technology are covered under pending patents." Not being one to let such claims go, I asked Connectix president Roy McDonald for clarification. Here's his tongue-in-cheek response:

We've programed a set of External Logical Value Enhancing Subroutines into a System Accessible Nanyte Task Accumulator. This works on a sub-system level to increase the storage capacity of each memory address.

In layman's terms, SANTA's ELVES run around inside RAM finding room for more info than normally can fit inside. Of course, SANTA keeps a list of which memory sectors are good and which are bad and fills the bytes accordingly...

More details in the coming New Year. -Roy.
