    Exciting as ever, now could one of these storage density breakthroughs finally get round to being included in a product? Even if it's at some ridiculous price range that's only suitable for commercial use, it would be nice to get the ball rolling at least.

    Honestly, I would not mind my bank account being randomly changed. It has no where to go but up.
