"GE Global Research, GE's technology development arm, announced yesterday that it has developed a holographic storage material that can support 500 gigabytes of data storage capacity in a standard DVD-sized disc.

"The company says it will take a few years to commercialize the technology, but it envisions consumers someday using it to store 3-D TV and other high-resolution formats.
