Top three mobile application threats

The DVD+RW Alliance, the organisation behind the unofficial rewriteable DVD standard, has approved a dual-layer version of the DVD+RW disc specification. Like existing DVD+R two-layer media, the rewriteable form sports a capacity of 8.5GB.

According to Japanese-language site PCWatch, the Alliance approved version 1.0 of the DVD+RW DL specification late last week. As yet, however, no announcement appears to have been made by the Alliance itself.

The write speed is 2.4x, the report claims. ®
