    Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM) have announced the world's first dual

    "Sales of DVD recording drives show tremendous increases worldwide,"
    says Shigeru Tamura, MKM Chief Information Officer. "And industry
    estimates put demand for DVD discs in 2005 at some 2.5 billion units,
    which is a year-on-year increase of 79%."

    As users record more images and movies, data density increases and

    That's assuming copy-protection and court cases don't destroy the
    market for these things. We know that is what blank DVDs are used
    for, in large part. Companies making DVD teaching sets, or people
    burning their wedding videos to DVD just are not going to create that
    kind of growth.
