Talk about your "information superhighway", this is like the freakin' "Information Autobahn!" Our sister-blog, Cinematical, just posted about a 1 terabit per second transfer mechanism that can move a two hour movie in the blink of an eye; or a half-a-second, if you're a slow blinker!
The technology is expected to be mainstream in about five years, so don't throw out your Windows Media Center just. The Kansei Electric Power Company in Japan figures 2010 at the earliest for this type of Internet speed. I could do the math for the transfer time of a single hour of high-def, but then you wouldn't have anything to do tonight. Go get your calculator and share with the group! Hmm....will "bit-torrent" be renamed "tera-bit-torrent?"
