prototypes that can store 35 terabytes of data - or about 35 million books' worth of information - on a cartridge that measures just 10 centimetres by 10 cm by 2 cm.

Just for nostalgia's sake, I'd make the bastards look exactly like ye olde cassette tappe.

Current projections by the trade body Information Storage Industry Consortium show that although hard drives will be able to store 3 terabytes a piece in a decade's time, that still amounts to at least 120,000 drives a year.

I'm guessing they mean per platter or something, right? Otherwise, maybe they should get someone to go check out Newegg.

EatenTheSun: I would play the shiat out of some Micro League Baseball right now.

I spent whole weekends programming in current teams..... Like all 30 (or I guess 26 back then!) and playing the whole season concurrent with the real season going on..... A few times, it was very, very similar

I'll see your Micro League Baseball and raise you Archon.

My buddy used to kick my ass (for real) because of my prowess with that unicorn firing its horn.....
