In the old days, some console cartridges had a battery in them to store game saves. But I think thats old technology, right? Today we don't use cartridges anymore, but if we did, I would imagine they would work with flash memory. Flash memory requires no battery.
But motherboards still have batteries to store...(the bios info, right?). Why should they need a battery anymore. Shouldn't they be able to hold info with flash memory (no battery)?
