Samsung and Microsoft have developed a HHD, hybrid* hard drive. Why didn’t I think of this? Flash memory is fast as lightning (not technically), and rotating disk hard drives forte on the capacity side of storage. When these two combine forces you’re set with a fast hard drive that has a large capacity. The best of both worlds, if you ask me.
This hybrid technology will be used for Microsoft’s new OS Longhorn.
*Note: do not mistake this with a hybrid vehicle, this hard drive does not run on gasoline and electricity.
