Hard drive manufacturers see demand for bigger drives ahead when we start storing digital video on devices integrated into our entertainment centers. You can already buy 120Gb and 160Gb drives for less than $300 down at the mall. Here’s an article about how those drives can hold so much, and where the technology is expected to go in the next few years. It will be less time than you think before a single drive will hold 1 terabyte – a thousand gigabytes. (If you’ve been around computers for a while, that will make you feel nostalgic for your first hard drive – incredibly expensive, infinitesimally small. Mind-boggling, isn’t it?)
