    I read about this a few months ago in popular science - pretty cool idea - sure will make harddrives smaller physically.

    BTW - can anyone say school house rock

    some entropy with that sink? entropysink.com

    I've never felt smarter when trying to learn about some new technology.


    From now on, I declare all technology spec sheets be presented in school house rock manner.
    c++->visualc++->directx->opengl->c++;
    (it should be realized my posts are all in a light hearted manner. And should not be taken offense to.)

    Gotta get a job with Hitachi.



    Interesting technology. Wonder if there are any unforeseen drawbacks like when Kenwood came out with 72x CD-ROMs. The laser was split into seven lasers and it was the fastest CD-ROM in the world. Problem was that as the disc aged and got scratches on it, the drive could not read it because the split laser's were returning bad info.
