    i heard about holographic discs which could store 500GB which is crazy in itself but to say 25000GB... is kinda unnecessary and strange unless they make HDD with tht tech

    This is true but its only the output that changes not the whole drive. For instance you could put it into a PC's DVD drive and read HD-Movies off it. Presumably anyway, it doesn't say if a laser or anything needs changed.

    I could care less to be honest. I hardly ever use discs anymore for my computer. I store everything on a slave drive and a USB storage device. The only time I ever use discs now is when I need to reinstall my OS and on rare occasions, backup my files if both of my hard drives and USB drive runs out of space.

    Just when I think the age of physical media obsolescence is coming...

    THIS happens.

    Discs will be outdated very soon. I think flashmemory will take over the world, next to cloudnetworking.

    Since when has there even been a 512GB USB flash drive? I'm pretty sure that 256GB flash drives were only introduced 4 months ago.
