GE Announces New Storage Medium That Can Hold 100 DVDs on a Single Disc

According to an article in the New York Times, G.E. has announced that it has achieved a breakthrough in the technology of storing data that will allow users to store the equivalent of 100 DVDs on a single, CD-sized disc.

This sounds pretty amazing. Imagine being able to carry every sample library you own on a single, portable disc. Imagine being able to take your entire movie collection with you when you travel. Imagine how many illegally downloaded albums and software pirates will fit on it? haha

Don't get too excited just yet, though. The technology is still in the testing phase and won't be on the market for some time.

Wheres the AUDIO player that takes advantage of this. We've been stuck on 16bit wav forever now and our 'medium' is getting crappier and more compressed by the day.

Sadly, it's still not enough room to hold the average drummer's pr0n collection.
