CDs Tue, Feb 08, 2005
So it turns out that the Compact Disc was patented in 1965. It must've been unfathomable back then. My thoughts: CDs will be obsolete within the next 5 years or so. Think about it: CDs hold 700 MB of information, music, etc. As of right now, there are Secure Digital cards capable of holding 2 GB of information. The difference: they're about an inch square, whereas a CD is 4.75 inches in diameter. A large round disc is probably the stupidest way to store information in a portable way. But in 1965, it was probably amazing that you could make a record smaller than 7 inches. #technology
