That's the Way of the World

Frustrating techie item from Ananova:

Compact discs could be history within five years, superseded by a new generation of fingertip-sized memory tabs with no moving parts.

Scientists say each paper-thin device could store more than a gigabyte of information – equivalent to 1,000 high quality images – in one cubic centimetre of space.

Experts have developed the technology by melding together organic and inorganic materials in a unique way.

They say it could be used to produce a single-use memory card that permanently stores data and is faster and easier to operate than a CD.

It’s claimed that turning the invention into a commercially viable product might take as little as five years.

Great. Now I have to buy all my Earth Wind & Fire albums in another new format?
