    Seagate announced a while ago that they would use heat-assisted recording technology once perpendicular recording reached it's limits. And as development of heat-assisted recording technology continues, Seagate has discovered that they can store much more data on a drive than they initially thought. Seagate claims that they can stick 50 terabytes in a square inch of data, meaning a standard 3.5" drive can hold a whopping 300 terabytes of data. That's equivalent to 6,144 50GB Blu-ray disks, the entire PlayStation 1, 2, and 3 library with room to spare, or the Library of Congress.

    Rofl, that is hillarious. Good God, with one 300 Terabyte HD, No one would ever need to buy HDs really again, until they die out that is. I love it. Hell, Id love a 1 TB drive with a 300 GB raid of 150GB 10000 RPM SATA drives :)

    Terabytes? pfft that so last century. I'm waiting for the petabyte 15krpm drives in raid 0. Then I will officially be able to store as much porn as I want.

    True, but if that does happen I'll be able to say "Damn my hard drives crashed and I had the internet saved on them!"
