Gary Brown writes “An article running at HowStuffWorks shows the current technology used in flash memory by using a cool animation. Article also shows DataPlay’s micro-optical drive. This tiny drive, about the size of a matchbox, uses tiny optical discs that are encased in a plastic shell. Each disc is capable of holding 500 MB of information. A DataPlay cartridge is not much bigger than a U.S. quarter.”
