Andrew Binstock pointed me to this CNet article, regarding the forthcoming introduction of terabyte hard drives from Hitachi Global Storage Technologies. Too bad they didn’t ship in December. My, that burger tastes good.

Hitachi GST, by the way, is IBM’s old storage division, which Hitachi bought in 2003 and absorbed into their own storage group. I visited the IBM hard-disk plant in San Jose about a decade ago. It had very impressive displays of old washing-machine-sized 5MB hard drives in its museum.
