Default Laser hard drives coming?

A new technique that uses heat and ultra-fast lasers to record data on hard drives could pave the way for speedier and more compact storage tech. Using this new technology hard drive capacities could be as high as 10 terabytes per square inch

I'm gonna put my faith into SSD's for mainstream computing. If laser drives like that catch on, I think they'd only appeal to people with servers.etc

Thanks for the cool bit of tech news! I'm sticking with SSD tech for now. I wonder if these hot, hot laser drives are safe toss around like an SSD.
