    I just read that sony came out with a blue light lazer burner in japan that will burn 23 gigs single side single layer. holy cow!!! they state that it will record 4 hours of HD video. Now we can have full resolution audio without any compression. HD video with HD audio on one disc. I think this is great. I also read that by 2007 there will be a 400 gig halographic disc. that's only 4 years away. now if i can just get my cell phone to work more than 20 min

    I'm going to pray that my harddrives wont crap out, for the next 3-4 years.
    This must mean that we can use storage medium from the front of the computer, like we do now with our CD/DVD drives (not internally).

    Toshiba has a read/write/erase 1 tetrabyte disc that is only 1.7" in dia that can spin 200Krpm.

    So , what else is new.

    200K R.P.M. I don't think so....It would be much faster than the speed of sound and would probably shatter. Can you provide a website with the info on it. Thanks

    You're not kidding Tom! I did a little calculation for fun, and the edge of that disc would have a linear velocity of 27,130 m/s. - or mach 79! :eek: If someone could provide me with the mass of this thing, we could find out how much energy is associated with this speed... probably quite dangerous.

  7. Is that Meters or Miles per second?! If it's miles, you're at 1/5th the speed of light. Someone better dial up Einstein's relativity theory on this one! :eek:

    We could safely assume that a 1.7 inch disc would weigh in at about 2 ounces.

    Great....another industry plot to get us to buy completely new hardware. And reissue catalog music yet again, sounding better. (lol)

    Griffinator,

    'm' stands for meters and 'mi' stands for miles. :)


    Merry Christmas everyone!
     
  11. Of course it does, Dave - I was having a bit of fun, that's all. :)
