I saw some program the other day where they were able to store terabytes date in holograms only a few cm's wide I think that is the future for storage.

For blu-ray to take off I believe that it would be backward compatible with the present red-lazer equipment, like your DVD-player. This shouldn't be too difficult since the wave of the blu-ray is 1/10th that of the red, the smaller blu-ray would be able to read the larger pits made by the red-lazer.
This would not work the other way around. I would also imagine that the new 27 GB disk would be easily damaged but sunlight etc. Let us see.

Can you imagine the cost of that though.

I don't have a terabyte of data....

Matter of fact, all the newsgroup posts ever made but not including binaries, use just a few terabytes.

You can never have too much storage, I've got a hard drive in the loft which cost a couple of hundred and had a 85mb capacity, nowdays you can get a 300gig for less, In a few years it will be repeated , isos for the consoles of the future will probably weigh in at hundreds of gigs or something and you will need to have tyrabyte storage.
