In the biggest turnaround of the millennium, the format thought to be pushing up daisies for good is being reincarnated by the Taiwan World Association of Technology in an all-new 3-inch form.
The diddy HD DVD will launch with space for a terabyte of data, but storage boffins believe that as the technology advances and more layers are added the new format may be capable of holding a yottabyte (YB) of data. That's enough for nearly all of Steven Seagal's back catalogue of movies.
The tiny disc is being developed in top secret labs alongside new pocket-sized HD movie players and is due to be with us in time for Christmas.
So, Blu-ray, are you ready for round two?
