So, yesterday evening, I was relaying to Donovan the large change over the course of my short life in the size and power of the personal computer. We researched some of the first computers, and I even introduced him to punch cards. As a side note, I still cannot find my piece of Mylar punch tape – wherever did it go!
Anyway, in reviewing an announcement that came a few weeks ago by Intel, I found this bit of information. Intel now has one of the smallest Solid State Hard drives on the market.
I’ve been impressed at the size of the 2.5 inch hard drives that go into laptops (they’re roughly the size of an American dollar bill). Take a look at the latest 80 GB hard drive, compared to the dollar size 2.5.
Pretty soon, we’ll have watches that can store a terabyte of data – what do you think of that Mr. James Bond?
