Computer Technology Is Awesome

The International Business Times reports (via Slashdot):
Toshiba said Thursday that it will show off a new line up of NAND-flash-based solid state drives with the industry's first 2.5-inch 512GB SSD.

The drive is based on a 43 nanometer Multi-Level Cell NAND and claims to offer a high level of performance and endurance for use in notebooks as well as gaming and home entertainment systems.

I remember back when 3.5-inch 1.44MB floppy disks were the newest and best thing in personal computer data storage. Then I recall being blown away by a 120MB HD. Technology has obviously advanced quite a bit since then.

And, because computer storage capacity is growing exponentially, it won't be long before we'll be able to buy portable music players preloaded with years worth of music. Truly amazing stuff.
