Why are CD-Roms the same size as 25 years ago?
Does anyone know why the CD-Rom(and drive) has not been miniturised? Is there a technical reason? I'd think the technology is available to make this a reality.
I've seen CDs(data) the size of business cards, so why is this not the standard? If the size was halved, they could fit drives into netbooks, giving them greater capabilities, and thereby replacing the cumbersome notebooks/laptops.
When do you think the size of the CD-Rom will change? 5 years? 10? Never?
