Finally, a home for those Grateful Dead jams

Interesting report of a super data storage technology out of the UK = Racetrack computer memory.
"IBM says this technology could enable a handheld device such as an mp3 player to store around 500,000 songs or around 3,500 movies - 100 times more than is possible today."

Can't wait to see at what point the human mind breaks under the weight of "content pressure" = the desire to collect more and more content just because you can. At which point Google launches their handheld Google InfoBox that can hold all information in the world, all the time for instant access. Very Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
