The laser, which emits 450 milliwatts miliwatt bean — about double that of previous Blu-ray Disc systems — can read and write data on discs with up to four data layers, affording Blu-ray players the ability to store 100GB on a disc or 8 hours of high-definition video."

  • Advancement to a technology which I intend to completely ignore. I guess I'm still a little sore that I went out and purchased a HDDVD player that now sits next to my XBOX360 gathering dust. I will admit that the technophile in me geeks out about stuff like this. Maybe it could be usefull for data storage/backups.
