That was fast. It only seems like yesterday that we were buying our first recordable DVD drive and looking down our noses at the unwashed masses with their CD burners, and yet already industry types are saying that it's game over and that DVD recorders aren't going to get any faster than 16X.  Why? Same reason why CD burners maxed out at 52X — spin the disc any faster and it'll physically crack. The first 16X DVD drives should be out in a few months, probably no later than September.
