Yeah - but its 2010. By that time every man and his dog will be doing Multi TB on some sort of disc.

Now if they said this year - or perhaps early next year then it may be something special... But no - its 3 years away in the IT industry...

The difference is 2 years but seriously I think companies do this so that they have a new product to talk about by then. This technology sounds very promising, I hope the disks are in cartridges though.

Ya and unless it is different from DVDs it should be very easy to do with that kind of data density.

Well I am just thinking here, but I wonder how the multiple layers affects it? Does it make it more scratch tolerant or less?

It probably doesn't do much of either I would think. Then again, I'm not really sure.
