Thumbs up

At long last, a CD that has more storage capacity than five computers. Forget USB drives, once this gets commercialized I can carry EVERYTHING with me (literally).

Halleluiah!

thats pretty cool, but i have a feeling that now taht theres so much space on the disc, it will be hella slow. Imagine a disc drive looking through hundreds of gigabytes to find one file, it would take forever!

I'd say theres 512 trilobytes of data. Imagine if they had a 1 trilobyte disc. Thats 1000 gigs. In 10 years, they'll probably have em.

thats a lot of storage, and just a few years ago people only had like 400 mb hard drives and people said they would never use up that much space. now were up to 100+gb hard drives and thats still not enough.

I can finally fit all of Mikes mom on a disk...

Edit- What happened to the inbetween, why wouldnt they market like 10 gig disks first, and then when there good and ready market the higher storage ones?

Hopefully this just means that movies ect will be more high definition. If there is no worry about size they can make the files massive.

then again I don't really believe this tech will ever really use this. I think it will get to smaller disks. and better ways of compacting it. so that its easier to find stuff on the disk.
