100% yearly gains, riiiight...

See in The Register: hard drive manufacturers said to want to stay on track with 100% yearly increase in aereal densities.

Of course, another exponential function like compound interest. Like either of them is sustainable now... but apparently it is not yet clear. So, how many years until we can store the Universe on a hard drive? Can we be realistic, please?
