Thin Is In

No surprise here. Thinner components mean smaller technology and everybody knows the more tech you can haul around with you, the better. Data storage going from punch cards, to tapes, to hard drives, to nand flash chips making your life better and your wallet lighter. I remember when compact flash memory was the bomb and then was shortly replaced by secure digital memory cards, which has been replaced by microSD cards. It’s beginning to get a little insane just how much data can be stored on the tip of a finger.

Hard drives are shrinking in size … physical that is. 3.5″ to 2.5″ and now smaller. Hitachi has come out with a laptop hard drive that is a mere 7 mm (millimeters) thin. The Z series comes in 160/250/320 GB flavors all spinning at 7,200 RPM. Encryption is optional. Me thinks this will be showing up in cheaper Macbook Air’s in the near future. Keep on rocking thin tech.
