Compression - is this it, or is there more to come?

Compression algorithms have obviously come a long way, but now it seems
they're all standing at the end gates of what's possible. With encryption we
can continue to make things harder and harder to crack, but with compression
it seems there's only so much you can do to crunch data ... are we reaching
the limits of compression or is there still a lot more to come?
