Memory

Supply and demand. Memory is treated like a commodity on the stock exchange. When prices are too low, some companies don't survive. Prices are going up as demand increases. I remember standing in line to buy a 4 MB stick of ram for $100, which was cheaper than anything else at the time. That was about 15 years ago.

Read this earlier this year, due to the economy and the excess inventories ram manufacturers stopped production. They waited till inventories reached 20% from the level they were at. This caused a perceived shortage, lower availability, higher prices. They all did this as a form of survival, interesting how competetors get together sometimes.
