There are surprisingly few details on this new–or OLD and “SAT ON” technology… Singled Magneting Recording (SMR)… except to say that the areal densities could skyrocket in the next 7 years only to hit new “walls”. We all know that as hard drives get larger, they must increase the speed as well… These drives must get faster thant 200 MB sequential read… maybe putting an additional rw head per platter will boost the capacity to 400 MB/sec…

What is pathetic though is we stil have 4, 8 and 16gb of ram sticks… ( 2005 wants their memory back) They’ve been sliding by on very little R&D into higher capacities. While SSD screches towards 1tb of capcacity in nearly the same footprint.
