are the ones most likely to pack together lots of material rapidly into large, Jupiter-size planets, says Strom.
"Where," one might ask, "are all the systems that use optical techniques for data storage?" When the compact disk record-only-memory (CD-ROM) and the CD-recordable (CD-R) appeared on the market, those who thought they were in the know predicted the rapid capture of the recording market by these high-density disks
"It has a vastly larger capacity for data density, and the new high-density disks
, which will surface sometime next year, will allow for faster access time, higher throughput and more varied video content."
For example, ,you can buy a box of high-density disks
for an IBM PC/ AT for $15.55 from one supplier, or you can pay $42.50 from another supplier.
