<font size="3">Plastic promises dense data store</font>
A common plastic used to keep monitor screens clear of fluff could soon be used as a high-density computer memory.
In the journal Nature, the US researchers behind the discovery say it could let them pack a gigabyte of data into a sugar cube-sized device.
The material is also very cheap to manufacture and data can be written down and read back from it quickly.
The researchers predict that it could take only a few years to turn their discovery into working devices.
