Hardware, Embedded Systems "In the world of hard drives storage, density is king and Seagate has just achieved a major breakthrough that guarantees major storage gains for the next decade. That breakthrough is managing to squeeze 1 terabit (1 trillion bits) of data into a square inch or space, effectively opening the way for larger hard drives over the coming years beyond the 3TB maximum we currently enjoy. How much of an improvement does this storage milestone offer? Current hard drives max out at around 620 gigabits per square inch, meaning Seagate has improved upon that by over 50%. However, that's just the beginning."

about time. hard drive capacity has always grown exponentially....except for the last few years.

I've now got a plethora of 2TB hard drives laying around with stuff on them and that drives me insane. I like having ONE drive and ONE backup drive. thank you seagate.
