jjz-;4774916Don't forget the protein coated disks that can hold terabytes of data.

Expected "by the end of the year" every year since 2005.

Actually, they were never given an ETA, and are only being researched by one fella from Harvard iirc. Where are you quoting this from?

I wasn't quoting anything specifically. I was just pointing out that almost any new technology seems to always be coming soon for years, then pushed aside and abandoned for something cheaper.

And a quick wiki search: Protein-coated disc - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "estimated in July, 2006 that a USB disk would be commercialised in 12 months and a DVD in 18 to 24 months."

To be honest, does anybody owns a blu-ray player? And frequently uses it? And not a PS3, a real player bought for watching movies.

Yes, Daily and then some. New release BluRay movies I can get for $5 more then a new release DVD Movie, and it has waaaaaaaay better picture quality and audio quality.

-Sirius-;4774728...like as soon as something is released, its obsolete. :D

The whole point is, it's not like that at all.

Agreed. Otherwise mechanical hard drives would have been dead LOOOOOONG ago, so would ram, everythign basically. Nothing is obsolete, just updated to be better, within a short period of time its cheap and easily affordable, just like BluRay and HD DVD

I realize that, and if you'd notice, I wrote "seems".

Lighten up.
