iPod To Eventually Hold All the Video In the World?

Via Slashdot, Jo Best on silicon.com reports that a executive from Google recently predicted:

...in the coming years, the plummeting price of storage and its increasing volume-to-size ratio will give iPods almost unlimited potential to hold music and video.

Arora said, by 2012, iPods could launch at similar prices to those on sale now and yet be capable of holding a whole year's worth of video releases. Around 10 years down the line that could be expanded, creating iPods that can hold all the music ever sold commercially.

He said: "In 12 years, why not an iPod that can carry any video ever produced?" The Google exec said tech is now pursuing a price volume game - searching for the price point at which content will take off for the mainstream.

That be kind of wild, huh? When you buy a device, it would contain all the audio and video ever produced. The distribution problem would be solved. Listening to or watching something would then just be a matter of purchasing the rights to do so.
