Hi,

just ran into this PCworld article about a new kind of storage device:
http://www.pcworld.com/news/article/0,aid,108816,tk,dn011603X,00.asp

Basically it seems to be a crossover between a HDD and a floppy... Hmm, makes me wonder and want to ask: Sir, can you BOOT from that? ;)

Might be mighty good news if the pricing is on the level mentioned. Well, we will just have to wait and see...

Link to the site of the manufacturer:

They'll probably be pretty expencive at first .. though they do sound pretty interesting! Quite a lot of my pc's *Really* don't need 7200rpm 80gig harddisks! And no one seems to sell smaller harddisks, so one of these would be nice :).

You got that right. I'm getting pretty tired of carrying a harddisk around whenever I need to exchange some data :-D.

WOW. Crisspy just grew a wrench in his pocket.

I want I want I want. I really really hope these things work out well. What an amazing and excellent system. Thanks for the tip manalainen. I seldom see something this exciting in new computer tech, my head is reeling.
