  • A DVD that lasts 1000 years (but is it scratch resistant?)

    New kid on the block Cranberry claims that their new DVD will last 1,000 years.

  • Transformers 2 sells 7.5 million DVD & Blu-ray discs. Can't you people find a better movie to buy?

    This is just wrong. I’ll admit, I didn’t enjoy “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”.

  • Will anybody give a damn about your burnt DVDs 1000 years in the future?

    A Utah company claims to have developed a DVD that will last 1,000 years under normal, everyday conditions. (You don’t have to be a professional archivist, in other words.)
