They're currently no bigger than a pack of cards, but MP3 Latest News about MP3 players such as iPods could get much smaller, according to researchers at a Scottish university. Chemists at Glasgow University have engineered a tiny molecule which can store huge amounts of data in very small spaces, meaning the physical size of digital memory cards and hard drives could shrink dramatically in the next few years."</i><br /><br />Now that's what I'm talking about! Forget these bumps from 1 GB to 2 GB - if this technology makes it to the implementation stage, it could completely define the way storage works in the technology world. There are a lot of remaining questions with this breakthrough, including the cost involved, but if it were possible to create affordable storage cards that held 200+ GB worth of space, imagine how radically that would change the world of consumer electronics! 8O

Yawn. Wake me up when I can have a 1terabyte miniSD. :lol:
