Talk:Hard drive technology breaks storage density record
100 years? 
The article says "perpendicular recording has been discussed in academic circles for over 100 years." How can this be true when hard drives haven't been around for nearly that long? Sure this shouldn't be 10 years? 188.8.131.52 02:07, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)
- The first source for the article talks about this. I changed the copy to be more clear. -- IlyaHaykinson 02:15, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)
- The other reference is good too. Now it's doubly-sourced. :) — DV 02:20, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Theory or real? I changed the title... 
I moved the article because the claim of a 230GB/in2 hard disc being *manufactured* is not backed up in the article.
By all means move it back to 'Hard drive breaks storage density record' if that is true, but please then put info into the story to back up this claim. For now I have it at 'Hard drive technology breaks storage density record'.

Get perpendicular? 
What a bizarre advertising campaign.
The Hitachi cartoon is destined to become a classic, but who is it aimed at? Are many buyers of high-density storage susceptible to cute dancing bits parading under a spinning disco ball? Mr. Actuator was scary. I am concerned that small children will have bad dreams about him.
Hopefully the price will drop a bit from the prices quoted in the linked article. Thanks for submitting this story. — DV 03:44, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Any idea on the 2.5"HD,3.5"HD &1.8"HD capacity? The comment of 230Gig/inch[sq] means what exactly? ......2.5"x230gig=575Gigs. (I know thats not the case, but the article could be clarified a little by giving a ballpark storage capacity for each standard size.)

GB or Gb 
There are some serious mistakes concerning the amount of information per inch on these hard drives. The articles say Gigabits but the abbreviations read GB, which means gigabyte. I'm trying to change them, but there are many and I'm not sure which actually mean gigabyte or gigabit. Vash The Stampede 15:10, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
