Re: One of the biggest tech news stories of the year

As exciting as this news is, I can remember articles in Byte magazine discussing breakthroughs in page-oriented holographic memory promising terabytes of data on a microscope-slide-sized storage medium.

Then there were the SED display technologies which promised superior image quality to LCDs with far lower power requirements than plasma.

There are a lot of barriers, apparently, between the initial proof-of-concept and a successfully-marketed product.
