Once Again the Media is Short-Sighted About Technology

How many uses can you think of for a 1 terabyte (1000 GB) CD? is reporting about a new technology ("TeraDisc") developed by Memphile (to whom they didn't bother to link). It uses 200 5MBGB layers to store the data.

That's astounding isn't it. Let you mind wander at the possibilites.

Or you can be short-sighted like they were:
It's hard to imagine that a disc format not invented by one of the world's big technology firms could become a future industry standard. But it's perfectly conceivable that these discs might one day be used in libraries to archive digital copies of books and so forth.

Yet another example of short-sighted people claiming technology won't be widely used.
