From what I've been reading...this may be nirvana for hometheater buffs. Holographic storage will make high bitrate audio and video a reality...2004 is not too far away. When (not if...) it takes off I bet things could happen for the home market before the next decade (Hey by 2010 Disney should have the last of their Platinum Editions released). I'm willing to wait...the future looks bright! http://www.inphase-technologies.com/ Enjoy fellow geeks!
