Nanotech may bring 10 PByte 3.5" storage disks
California nanotech firm Collosall storage claims that it holds essential patents to develop a disc storage with a capacity of up to 10 PBytes.

If produced, a Atomic Holographic Storage disc drive will cost between $570 to $750 with disc prices running for about $45.
