Claims have arised from a group of Australian scientists that they have come up with a way so that up to a whooping 10TB of data can be stored on a single disc. The team from Swinburne University of Technology, Australia, have successfully added “the dimensions of colour and light polarization” to our already existing technology in DVDs giving it massive boost to its maximum storage capacity.
These new discs will be capable of storing 10,000 times more data than our current DVDs, so far they have already been able to achieve 1.6TB discs and these could be on sale through Samsung within the next five years, as a deal has already been snatched. In addition to that, 10 TB will eventually be possible but we’ll need to look further ahead – next ten years.
It’s February and guess what that means, Valentine’s Day is near! Our friends over at Walyou have come up with a list of gift ideas both for geeky boys / men and girls / ladies. If you have a look, most of them are within a reasonable budget which I suppose is what everyone would like to see during these economic times. I suppose gift options for lads are usually more expensive compared to girls as you will see, though this becomes entirely the opposite if you start looking into jewelleries for girls! Anyways, have a look and see if it helps? Further suggestions would be most welcomed!
