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?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
