<The tantalising prospect of DVDs capable of holding almost a terabyte of 
data - or several hundred movies - has been presented in a patent issued to 
US storage company Iomega.

The US patent describes a disc that could store 40 to 100 times more 
information that a conventional DVD, using more nanometre-scale sloped 
ridges to diffract light. US patent number 6879556 - entitled "Method and 
Apparatus for Optical Data Storage" - was issued to Iomega on April 12 
2005. [etc] >
