    is that a 5.25" bay-mounted hard drive on the picture?

    <NOSTALGIA>
    The hdd on my first pc had a whopping 20mb, which was also a 5.25" bay drive... I remember we never even got it halfway full back then. But then again, most programs shipped in 360kb floppies in those days...

    If they were really clever they would include some prize with the billionth drive. (Think gold ticket)

    I guess that could boost the sales a bit.

    The manufacturing machines in that video on seagate's website are awesome. Love pick-n-place machines. Wish I had one in my room to make me sandwiches.

    As any operating system will tell you, seagate's billion drives is only worth about 931,322,574 drives in real world usage.
