You can buy a 1.5 or 2 terabyte hard drive for $100 these days. Until flash is that cheap, I would suggest that reports of the demise of the HDD are somewhat premature.

Eventually solid state will likely replace most spinning media. The amount of time between now and then depends on a number of factors, including cost curve, reliability, and density. I do like that Apple took the chips out of the archaic HD module. In the near term, I can understand the value in making SSDs emulate spinning hard disks, but long-term, it seems pretty silly to force chip memory to emulate a form factor and interface that was developed with spinning media in mind. It's time to create a new interface standard specifically designed around the strengths and weaknesses of solid state mass storage.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
