Traditional databases are fine for storing text, numbers and dates, but today there are many other data types we might want to store right along with the traditional data types. An Object Database can store document images, photographs, sounds, music, and anything else we have learned to digitize, and provide ways to sort and select them (sorry, we don't have a way to digitize smells, yet, never mind play them back).

One thing - when you start storing stuff like this in your name and address file, you'd better plan on some significant data storage space. See Network Attached Storage and CD Towers and Jukeboxes.
