Expected to happen.. My question is what WDC and Seagate is planning to do abt it . They even acquired the ailing HDD divisions from samsung, hitachi,maxtor.. Are they going to stand still and enjoy the inevitable slow death OR jump into SSD march with the current 100 other companies and sell commodity SSD drives. OR do some interesting hybrid of HDD & SSD. The current hybrid HDDs are only good for boot speed.

I expect the "cloud" to be about the only place consumers will store their data. Plus maybe a USB drive for sensitive stuff. Businesses will still use HDDs for some time. I do expect the CD/DVD drive to disappear much quicker than the HDD.
