I heard this technology has been around for years, just no-one had THAT much need for THAT much data before, until now, Sony is just filling a super
rare niche market, but will most likely be the leader when more and more company's start storing ALL their files on digital format.
The thing is, these are tapes, and once the data is on there it's meant to be put on there, locked up, and only used in extreme situations, it's not
like you can just whip these things out like an old cassette tape and play video games and watch movies off it nightly. They are quite delicate from
what I understand. They are purely used for their surface area for maximum optimization of space.
Still, quite impressive!
