MP3s and HardDrives @ 10:25 am

I think MP3s are single handedly driving HardDrive sales right now. No one needs a 40 gig drive for normal use. The only reason you'd need that much space is if you were storing large files. I'm a hard core user and 40 gig is a lot.

You're right.. the only way to justify it is if you making money with the space or just a storage freak like me! (I do kind of make money though).

Actually, I think marketing is driving HD sales as much. Maybe no one needs a 40G drive, but the ads make the average luser think they do.

I guess that's true. Even a hardcore MP3 guy like me doesn't have more then 10 gig. What the heck are they still making bigger HDs for. Make em quieter and FASTER.

Yeah, that'd be nice. :)

I'm looking forward to those teeny lil multi-gig drives, the ones that actually fit in digital cameras and the like, but I'm sure they're painfully expensive.

Still, I do like the idea.

I'm with you! That'd rock... portable MP3 players would never be the same. Imagine the possibilities. Why don't they devote their time to that instead of making these gigantic drives that no one will ever really use.

I'd much rather have a smaller disk I could drop in my camera.
