"Two experts said they had developed a molecule-sized switch which...
could see 500,000 gigabytes squeezed into a microchip no bigger than a two pence piece...."

How long will it take before a base install of some future version of Windows will fill up most of that space?

What do you mean "most of that space"? My guess is as soon as the technology is available Windoze will balloon to at least twice that. Wait until you see the size of the next edition of Office!

Back to the topic, I'm curious about the access speed of something like this. How quickly could you turn this on and off? Seems like we're not just talking about increasing storage capacity, but also processing power and processing speed.
