from the reading it says they actually made it larger so it would be about the same size as a credit card, which is more convienent. sounds like there is a lot of headroom in this technology. im guessing reliability and speed will determine is these replace regular drives, at least before crystal drives do
Reminds me of the old TurboGraphics 16 console's game cards. These could prove to be viable tape backup replacements. I can't wait for the day when I don't have to deal with customers' sh*tty SCSI tape drives at work.
I want one too and then I want someone from Godfather to make every single manufacturer of electronics offer they can not refuse.
So I dont have to deal with DVD-RW,DVD+RW,RS-MMC,secure digital,MMC,USB disk, did I forget anything and every single one having its special use
Holographic recording technology records data on discs in the form of laser interference fringes, enabling existing discs the same size as today's DVDs to store as much as one terabyte of data (200 times the capacity of a single layer DVD), with a transfer speed of one gigabyte per second (40 times the speed of DVD). This approach is rapidly gaining attention as a high-capacity, high-speed data storage technology for the age of broadband.

Still all the media I mentioned above would be worth replacing with this, at least for me, since they are really used more or less for data transfer.
If the reliability proofs to be such an issue, then Id stay with rs-MMC (mobile phone add on card), but the rest could esily do with some hickups along the way.
