New storage media

People have been talking a lot lately about the next thing in storage - Holographic Versatile Disc or HVD's. Remember that name as you will be hearing a lot of it in the future.

Storage ultimately possible of 1.6 terabytes, the drive will debut in Nov 2006 with storage of 300 gigs and with access speeds more than double that of the fastest blue-ray disc.

Can't wait. My mom asked me who could possibly have use for this much storage. I told her that I currently had 320 gigs worth of storage in my gaming rig and then some more via dvd's.

Imagine the ease of storing everything on a single disc.

The amount of time and space saved.

I know I will surely be tracking this technology for a while...
