    Yeah I read this earlier on google tech news.
    How come the speeds haven't gone up and prices come down for us consumers? I think a 10 megabit connection should be kind of standard for internet these days.
    Makes you wonder.

    It does make you wonder.

    It also makes you wonder whether or not Hard Drives will be capable of supporting such speeds. Sure sending an HD version of The Matrix in a couple seconds is awesome, unless my home HDD can write that fast, The technology isn't worth a Brown Zune... if you know what I mean. least on a consumer level.

    Yeah, um, how many harddrives can support sending 40 gigs in 3 seconds...?
