One of my friends told me that scientists have developed a new optical disc that can supposedly store up to 1.6 terabytes. After telling me this, he joked, “Should I start thinking about packing-up my brand new Blu-ray player?” Technology always changes and I am sure it will again, I thought to myself. So, I decided to dig deeper and gather some facts about this new SUPER disc. As it turns out, my friend was correct, researchers at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia have created a prototype using 'gold nano rods' (i.e. tiny particles of gold too small to see) and polarized light (i.e. light beaming in only one direction).

CDs and DVDs are sensitive optical recording surfaces. A good rule of thumb is to handle a DVD more carefully than a CD. Because a DVD consists of two sides glued together (each a mere 0.6 mm thick), it can be susceptible to damage from bending and/or twisting. Also, though DVD error-correction encoding is nearly ten times better than those of audio CDs, because of DVD’s much higher compression ratio, shorter pit length and narrower tracks, severe scratches can create occasional problems in playback. Here are some do’s and don’ts to safeguard your DVD, so that your precious data is readable for years to come.

Last weekend my cousin came to visit and wanted to take a tour of Acutrack to see what we do. During the tour, when I was showing him how our zero inventory, positive cash flow providing, on-demand CD/DVD production model works, he noticed a back up CD for Panda Software and immediately exclaimed, “Hey, I just got a CD exactly like that one. You guys make those here?!?” After I told him that we not only make the back-up CDs for Panda Software but also manufacture, store and fulfill their retail software boxes in the US, he excitedly proceeded to tell me the following story.

Let’s start with a scenario that most computer users have faced at least once – imagine that your old PC is getting too slow to handle all the new and shiny applications and programs that have hit the Web lately, and you decide it’s time to upgrade to a new computer. After some research, you settle on the latest machine and you feel great when you bring it home and unpack it.
