    The mechanical drive just doesn't want to die does it?

    In other words there is still plenty money to be wrung out of current tech and with so few competitors it doesn't really matter if we take our time....

    5 of these would be a good start for my storage needs. I got up to 57Tb before the hard drive prices spiked.

    No it means that because there isn't a working proof of concept yet, they don't actually have a clue if it'll work well enough to implement into commerical applications.

    They DO have a working proof of concept. it's stated in the article.

    The reason for the delay IMO is likely a simple issue of logistics. "later this decade" isn't particularly vague, it means they expect to bring the product to market within 8 years. pretty reasonable considering they just finished a proof of concept in their labs.

    and SSD's won't replace hard drives for a long long time. SSD's have shorter lifespans than optical devices, and can't even come close to their price/capacity ratio. SSD's will serve as another caching layer between HDD and RAM. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_hierarchy

    Haha, you sir, are awesome.
    I thought I was doing 'well' at 10TB - I've squashed that to 8TB until a newpair of 3TBs arrive...
