Why nanotechnology is the future of IT

Just imagine hard drive capable of holding 1000 times as much data than those used in computers today. No, this is not something straight out of any science fiction. It is the future of electronics and computing supported by nanotechnology.

The advances in nanosciences may one day shrink modern day desktop PCs to the size of wrist watches. It's not just the size that is going to matter, the nano-revolution is going to give a big boost to power sources, chip technology and semi-conductors.
