Blu-Ray already obsolete? A terabyte on a single disc? Wowzers!

    Well I think the interesting thing here is, that Blu-Ray and HD are suppose to be released to the public and intergrated in the next 3-5 years, this will be ready in 5 years. Don't know if it'll catch on though considering companies have already adopted either HD or Blu-ray.

    I don't know if it will catch on for movies...but I can almost guarantee the computer people of the world will jump on this. I for one would love to have this... No more clunky external hard drives need to back up information.... Throw it alllll on one disk! Then again when it says some 400 plus minutes of video...I wonder what that would equate to in HD-Video.....teehee.. That would be very nice!!!

    If these discs catch on, we'll see many more threads such as this one in After Hours because people will be able to watch a hundred or so episodes of Dallas without getting up every once in a while.

    Yeah, this and Fluorescent Multilayer Disc and LaserFilm and all the others... I'll believe it when I see it. None of these schemes has been reduced to practice yet except the one which produced LaserDisc, CD, and now DVD. MiniDisc is a relative, but apparently a dead-end.
