  • 20 years of music..........

    Was reading an article today and thought it would be of interest to all concerned about storage. Article was about a new storage medium that will should go into production in 2 or three years that will store 10.8TB (yes that is terabytes) of data in the size of a credit card. They say production cost will be arount $50 so that would make the final product affordable. Did some calcculations and if you could get the 2.6 million songs you could listen for 20 years and not hear a duplicate. Hows that for a mobile player. If your interested in reading it do a Google search for Keele High Density and you will find several articles about it.

      ...with the result that very significant increases are achieved not only in memory capacity, but also for bandwidth capacity and processor speeds......

      Sounds like bandwith isn't a problem.
      Plus it's solid state. That would be soooo nice.

          It did say in one of the articles that it would make a 1.5Ghz machine run like a 12Ghz machine. It did say solid state but it also states that there are moving parts for moving and focusing the optics. I think the movement is will be in the drive. You just slide the card in the drive and the laser?? moves and focuses on the surface of the disk/card. I'm wondering if this comes out will the windows 2002 install be 5 terabytes?????????
