I'm sorry, your data now has Pr0n cancer...

[www.technologyreview.com]

"Computer architects at Microsoft Research say the company has formalized a goal of having an operational storage system based on DNA working inside a data center toward the end of this decade. The aim is a “proto-commercial system in three years storing some amount of data on DNA in one of our data centers, for at least a boutique application,” says Doug Carmean, a partner architect at Microsoft Research. He describes the eventual device as the size of a large, 1970s-era Xerox copier."

Note when I tell people that I can't remember something because my hard drive is full, I'm being serious.

Sometimes my screen gets DNA on it.

Great. DNA is prone to spewing off new viruses, so in the future, we will be treating computer viruses with amantadine. There will be a transfer of viruses to humans, then what? Armageddon. That's what. DNA is not a toy.

I fill my used condoms with Helium and I let them go up in the Cloud. Does it count?
