pixels on a video screen bein recorded or two very distinct tones in sound.
They tend to last longer. This is kind of the picture you can think of in
digital being recorded on analog media.
Actually, I would say the most recent data would hold out longer. There is
also called magnetic polarity states to watch out for as they may flip.
