DVD+R

For this month's APC Magazine cover CDs, it includes Windows XP SP2, quite a few DVD utilities, and - a blank 4.7Gb DVD+R (which they claim to be the world's first). Wow. That surely gets me excited.

Except that I don't own a DVD burner...

Now I am tempted to buy a DVD burner now (congratulation to APC's marketing department), but ain't they cheap these days?! You can buy a dual layer dual format internal DVD burner for less than 200 Australian dollars. It was just 5 years ago that I bought my first CD burner (a Richo 6 speed) for double that price, and I am still using it regularly today.

Feel like chasing after the wind sometime, especially when you are after the latest and greatest of technology...
