Faster, smaller, more …
In continuing to watch the advances in technology, it was great to see this article that talks about some of the advances in hard disk technology.

I was talking with some friends the other day about going to Costco and being able to buy 160GB hard disks for less than $1 / gigabyte! When I looked on-line I found 200GB hard disks at extremely affordable prices also. It is amazing to me that it is now affordable to have 1 terabyte of storage at home – if you wanted to – for ~$1000 … in 2004.

The rate of technology evolution is still cranking along. Even though this article refers to a slight slow-down, I believe it will be made up for in the near future. Anyone want to guess on when we’ll see the first 1000GB drive? Will it be within the next two years?
