IBM announced yesterday that they now have 10gigbit per square
inch magnetic media. They hope to have it in real products by
2001 (why so long?). This will fit over 6gigabytes of data onto
a single 2.5" platter. Storage costs have fallen in the last
6 years from over $5 per megabyte to 10 cents (at their current
level of around 1gigabit per square inch).
The future has arrived; it's just not evenly distributed.
