When asked about the new nano compression, the Orickle executive boastfully advised "Nano compression culminates years of research. We took a beating when the I've Been Moved company cut the storage requirements of our databases in half, but with new nano compression it will actually be possible to store terabytes of information in air particles - the only requirement is that the air be within a two mile radius of our new Titanic Server Machine." After pounding his chest he continued "Imagine - no disk drives, no energy consumed by storage, and virtually limitless capacity to store infinite quantities of blogs, tweets, feeds, maps, videos, music, XML, records, clothes, household items, business information, and dirty socks!"
Sam Paletino from the I've Been Moved company wasted no time in offering a response to the Orickle announcement. "Orickle is real good at marketing, but DB5 will blow the doors off 13G" he said.
