Had better not be gold. Not a the price it’s currently commanding on the commodities market. $1340 an ounce? I could barely afford to redecorateDavid Cameron’s office in at that rate.
Still, good news for those of us on more modest budgets. There’s plenty of research going on into gold alternatives for the electronics industry (link at embeddedtechnology.com), which rather relies on the shiny stuff for its conductive properties. It’s like costume jewelery for silicon, only better.
