New Storage Technology: 500,000 Song iPod!!

TIMES ONLINE--Scientists at IBM say they have developed a new type of digital storage which would enable a device such as an MP3 player to store about half a million songs - or 3,500 films - and cost far less to produce. In a paper published in the current issue of Science, a team at the company's research centre in San Jose, California, said that devices which use the new technology would require much less power, would run on a single battery charge for "weeks at a time", and would last for decades.

At present the most capacious iPod - the 160GB iPod Classic - can store 40,000 songs.

IBM said the technology was still "exploratory" at this stage, but that it expected devices which used it to be on the market within ten years.

Actually we won't even require storage for our iPods in the future.

Everything is going wireless.

Data will be cheap, fast (Tbps speeds up and down), wireless, mobile and ubiquitous.

Getting a guide to what data will provide the kind of experience you desire is going to cost a little more.
