This announcement will make Hollywood groan!

IBM today announced that it is using just a few atoms of "pixie dust" to push back the data storage industry's most formidable barrier.

With AFC media, 100-gigabit data density could allow the following capacities within two years:
Desktop drives -- 400 gigabytes (GB) or the information in 400,000 books;
Notebook drives -- 200 GB, equivalent to 42 DVDs or more than 300 CDs;
IBM's one-inch Microdrive -- 6 GB or 13 hours of MPEG-4 compressed digital video (about eight complete movies) for handheld devices.

Cheers, Horton

DFAST has nothing to do with stopping piracy and every thing to do with making you pay EVERY TIME you watch a movie.
