Say it's so, c|net, please say it is...

In the future, we might be able to save our history to a glass storage medium that could potentially outlive humankind. The new type of memory also touts mind-blowing specifications, such as 360TB per disc data capacity and the ability to withstand extreme temperatures up to 1,832 Fahrenheit.

They're calling it the "real-world version of Superman's 'Memory Crystals'".

Or search for "Superman Memory Crystals"; it's all over the web this week.  :Thmbsup:

Yes, but can you get it with all the porn already on it so you don't have to download it?

At my age...with a bad back... No no no ...(I've had to give up the trapeze and basket)... Questing for porn (oops!) I meant "erotic art" is just fine.
