From Mike's blog-
The holographic disk promises to retail for $100, and by 2010, it will have capacity of 1.6TB each. That's pretty inexpensive," said Ron Tarasoff, vice president of broadcast technology and engineering at Turner Entertainment. "Even this first version can store 300GB per disk, and it has 160MB/sec. data throughput rates. That's burning. Then combine it with random access, and it's the best of all worlds.

MPEG Streamclip 1.5 is now available. Converts Mpeg 1/2/4 files to QuickTime .mov's (incuding Apple's H.264). Muxes and demuxes mpeg and m2v. Since it uses Apple's H.264 it is considerably faster than Handbrake at encoding. This with MactheRipper is the best solution for archiving DVD's or converting them to play on iPods or in iTunes.
