Hard Drive Frontiers

Seagate, the (in my not so humble opinion) best drive manufacturer in existence, has unveiled a new 1TB barracuda drive. That puppy would sure ease some space problems. On the other end of the field, Samsung has announced they have put a new solid state 64 gig drive into mass production, in 1.8 inch size (obviously aimed at laptops). I read on Tech Report that allegedly this drive boasts 64MB/s read time, where a conventional 1.8" 80 gig drive would have something akin to 15MB/s.
