How Much Porn Do You Really Need?

US inventor Michael Thomas, the owner of Collossal Storage, says he has devised a way to hold 1.2 petabytes of storage on a single 3.5-inch disk.

“To put that into perspective, mega is 1,024 times kilo, giga is 1,024 times mega, tera is 1,024 times giga and peta is 1,024 times tera.”

For those of you who are counting, that would be about 25,165,824 full length pornos on one disk.

According to the article, Thomas expects a finished product to be on the shelves in 4 or 5 years at a cost of around $750 each.
Faraday Effect

“One field under study is optical spintronics following Faradays laws,” The potential data capacity is enormous, and there’d be a very high data transfer rate. Consequently, there’d be no need for expensive compression software like MPEG and others, and no need to backup data.”
