Need a way to store all that porn you got?

Maxell has holographic discs that can hold up to 1.6 terra-bytes.

It’s set to be introduced in 2006, but only at the 300 gig capacity. Gee, only three hundred gigs? I don’t think I’ll bother to buy storage media that is bigger than my hard drive. :stuck_out_tongue:

?! It’s bigger than both our hard drives.

And excuse me, but your link is showing, bouv my dear.

I have only one thing to say to that.

ME WANTY! :slight_smile:

Well why are you looking in the first place?

What’s wrong with looking? Are you shy?

I guess we can pass on Blu-Ray disc technology, then, eh? It isn’t even out yet, is it? And already they’ve got something another few leagues more advanced. Who would buy 27 gigs on a disc if they could get 300?!

I look forward to it, actually. I could reduce my CD collection to about 100 of the new discs, in uncompressed .wav files!

First, terabyte only takes one ‘r’ and no hyphen.

Second, I fixed the link.

Third, this could be very cool. :slight_smile:

" can hold as much data as 63 DVDs" I could put my current DVD collection on no more than 5 of them if any of my DVD player programs could read them.

Am I the only one who also thinks this is cool because it looks like old floppy disks? It’s retro!

Is this a real product? I get the feeling someone made it up.

Yes, it’s real, or at least the press release is.

Are the drives for home use read-only, like a CD-ROM? Or more like a CD burner? Or better yet, completely rewriteable?

300 gigs, eh? It would b interesting to have a disk that can fit more than five times as much as my hard drive can.
