Default The Future of Data Storage???

Hi,

I'm working on a paper - the future of data storage

Who are the main players in data storage (all formats from zip disk to usb key ring devices)

What do you think the future of data storage is in the next 10 yrs?

Any links on where to do tech research like this much appreciated...


and so I'm giving something to the forum:

[[[[[http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/busin...lastic%20Memory]]]]
[[[[[Wednesday, November 12, 2003 ยท Last updated 10:04 a.m. PT

New plastic memory technology unveiled]]]]]
interesting article!

cheers

First thing, Iomega is a big storage company. Secondly, storage seems to be going in many directions. There is much content you can search up regarding things like DNA computing and such. Here is something on a future data storage idea that may be of interest: http://computer.howstuffworks.com/ho...hic-memory.htm

And your link doesn't work by the way...

I'm waiting for the biological material based memory systems (like a brain, but man-made). Like the ship's gel-packs on Star Trek.

Wonder if I'll be around to see that happen?

yeh ive heard that too, they use diamond (i think) and it stores data 3 dimensionally to increase the capacity, it writes with 2 extremely small lasers (1 from side and 1 from front) and where they intercept it writes into it. they're having trouble making it re-writable
