Thanks Sara.

Sara showed me this, this morning. Its really neat. Stare at the dot in the middle of the image for like 30 seconds and scroll over it, then the black and white image will become color. Go ahead, try it.

Wahoo for data back-up.

http://pioneer.jp/press/release193.html
Pioneer has successfully created a 400gb blu-ray disk. Its 16 layers instead of the standard retail 2. You're probably thinking, "So what, who cares?" Well, if you own a computer and back-up your data, you care. If these babies hit retail one disk can back up all your shit instead of the DVD equivalent of roughly 85. One disk instead of 85! Wouldn't that be handy? Let's hope everything goes well and we see these very soon.
