    Cassette tapes might return for data storage in computers

    Cassette tapes used to be a popular form of storage with personal computers in the 70s and 80s, but were extremely slow.

    Though, IBM and fujifilm have developed working prototypes, which are said to hold up to 35 TB each, and 200 times more efficient than standard HDD.

    Pretty interesting. Being able to store all that data and carry it with you. 35 TB

    Found it here IBM and Fujifilm develop 35TB magnetic tape cartridges, unveil it in black and white and a lot of other sources

    Still holds a lot. And it wouldn't be used daily like normal storage mediums. It could be a place where you lets say store all your pictures on for safe keeping or all your financial records, etc. Or your entire music collection. All able to be stored on a single cassette you can store away and retrieve it when you need.

    The difference is that if it rips, it's all destroyed.
    From the looks if it, it is easy to rip.

    They are in cassette form, you have to try to break it.

    I still have audio cassettes from the 80s that work perfectly.
    The only way you're gonna rip it is if you try to fuck with the tape on purpose or it gets crushed or something.
    Which would also destroy every other kind of storage medium these days.

    Not being a hipster, i'm just giving an example that tape storage is pretty durable. they are in a closet in a box so I don't even use them.

    Well, true. BUT, if so happens it might tangle then you're fucked.

    I just hope these are faster than the Streamer cassettes that computers used back in the 90's...

    They most likely have a new technology. Back then they used normal audio cassettes, so the data traveled through an audio signal with a 3.5mm jack.
    Obviously outdated, so obviously they won't use it.

    There is no way they could fill the tape 35 TB at those speeds

    It is already being used by governments and corporations.

    Just because it hasn't reached a consumer market yet doesn't mean it's not being used and developed.
