A hybrid of SSD and hard drive that gives you the best of both. Does Seagate's new Momentus XT deliver? See for yourself in a couple of short videos in my review.
A Seagate product manager has reportedly confirmed that 3 TB drives are coming this year. And my sources say 4 TB drives are also due in the next 90-120 days - something pricing trends also suggest. Should you wait to buy?
A new superfast hybrid DRAM/flash drive almost debuts. Is it for you? How much speed can you afford?
Shouting at a disk drive will cause it to stop. But what about the constant nagging disks get in noisy data centers or busy towers? That may be a bigger problem.

Implicated in 2 space shuttle disasters. Banned by a combat commander in Iraq. Making sense of our collected and stored information is hard enough. Does PowerPoint thinking make it harder?
A battle is raging for IT mindshare: who and what will control the enterprise data center? The great consolidation has started and there will be blood.
I like NAB because it is about the future - of storage, of content, of entertainment. Large file-based worflows and rich metadata are the future, and NAB is a where a big piece of that lives.
Apple's new MacBook Pro models are out. Can you say "underwhelming?"
