Seagate: 300 terabyte hard drive will arrive by 2010

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.Source: The Inquirer

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 :)

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!"
