    Decades ago, I can't remember if it was when the original Star Trek aired or in The Next Generation, there was an episode where the a small team beamed onto an abandoned ship. They found small octangular cubes that they said contained the whole of the ship's log. In my mind I said "NO WAY!" Now, I'm floored to see it is actually possible.

    Apply this to a MicroSD card, and you would rarely need cloud storage (except when you want to make data available across multiple devices). Apply this to camera technology, and one disk alone could store the lifetime photography of an artist, mistakes and discards included, and still have space left over. Apply this to a laptop and you will never need to upgrade memory again. Corporations will absolutely jump on the bandwagon as soon as it is available.

    But wait! There's more! (I may have posted this before: 700TB in DNA)
