In this new era DvD will become less popular. Holographic DVD which have memory capacity of 1.6 Terabytes will takeover the markets soon

Bell Labs spin-off InPhase Technologies and Hitachi Maxell are currently working on a computer disc about the size of a DVD that could hold up to sixty times the data. The companies hope to have the disc and compatible drives on the market by the end of next year.These discs will use holographic memory.

What is holographic memory?

Data is stored on a crystal material that is sensitive to light. In order to read and write data, a light beam is split in two and one is passed through semi-transparent material. This material alters the beam to encode data.

The two beams then merge again in the crystal and the pattern of interference of the altered beam is recorded. Information is read and written quickly, as a large number of bits can be recorded and retrieved in parallel with one another.

This will allow a single disc to hold up to 1.6 terabytes of data read at 160 megabits per second -- 340 times the capacity and 20 times the data rate of traditional DVDs, and more than twice the data rate of Blu-ray and HD DVD with more than fifteen times the space. Initially, however, holographic discs will launch with a capacity of 300GB.

Learn how Mothers Day Originated.

Sunday, May 11, 2008 |

Today May 11th is celebrated as mothers day. Here is how it came to effect

The Mother's Day holiday, in the United States, celebrates motherhood generally and the positive contributions of mothers to society. It falls on the second Sunday of each May. It is the result of a campaign by Anna Marie Jarvis (1864-1948), who, following the death of her mother on May 9, 1905, devoted her life to establishing Mother's Day as a national, and later an international, holiday

The second Sunday of May will fall on the following dates in the next few years:
2008 - May 11
2009 - May 10
2010 - May 9
2011 - May 8


I came across a very nice book which express towards Mothers. you should also read it to know more about mothers.

Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul: 101 Stories to Open the Hearts and ... By Jack Canfield


M - O - T - H - E - R
"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,

Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"

A word that means the world to me.

Howard Johnson (c. 1915)

Do you like to see how it will be when the words comes upside down backwords. Here is a site which shows whatever you type upside down backwords.

How does this tool work? The program flips the regular English letters, by mapping them to multi-byte unicode characters, which make them look inverted.

Does this article intrests you then subscribe to FunLounge by Email

A drop is a chunk of space you can use to store and share anything privately (pictures, videos, audio, documents, etc.), without accounts, registration, or an email address. Drops are not "searchable" and not "networked;" they just exist online as private points for exchange between individuals or groups.

Create as many drops as you want in as little as two clicks and set things like a password, whether others can add to the drop, and how long you want it to exist (you can renew later). Drops can be flexibly used in a range of ways from sharing family photos and videos to collaborating on group projects.

Each drop has four primary input methods – the web, email, voice, and fax – and a few secondary ones like "widgets." Anything you input into a drop can then be retrieved on the web at that drop location.
