Lets store our photos in our DNA

In the future we will translate our data, our notes, diaries, and most importantly our favorite photos and videos into the binary code and then embed it into the junk part of our DNA (which is most probably non-functional so no harm to the cell). T and G = 1, A and C = 0 (from the article, shouldn't it be A and T vs G and C as these are the base pairs). Thus if we lose the hard disk with our photos, we will just extract the DNA from our cell/s and sequence it and get our data back.
Even better we will transfer this data to our offspring (if we modify our germ cells), thus the future generations will have our photos/videos in their DNA.
