Those 12" floppies you recall, were really 8", but they were 1.2MB.

I started with a home built HZ-89, 1.2mb 12" floppies and CPM. Interesting article, albeit we hear this same story every ~5 yrs. It is nice to know we are making progress, but nothing to worry about here unless you are a manufacturer. By the time this arrives all interoperability issues will be non-existent for the end user. Given the limitations of the hard drive mechanics, SSD will be the way to go until we perfect holographic or biological storage

Why isn't mSATA simply a bridge to PCIe? Seems like such a lost opportunity to get leverage from what already exists.

Comparison on raw data speed is not relevant. USB is not an efficient transport as 400Mbps Firewire far outperforms 480Mbps USB.

Looks like Hybrid Drives may soon have a future. SSD section for 6 Gbits/s and standard platter for 3 Gbits/s.

Reading through the article, it sounds that USB3.0 can not compete with SATA 3.0 except that in not having eSATA ports. There is a cost in building bridges from USB3.0 to SATA3.0 to support storage over USB3.0 , I am not sure how the cost of building up these bridges will compare to not having an eSATA port?

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
