Posted yesterday by me over here:

Looks like the SSD's of today are numbered! IBM's new memory, called "Racetrack Memory", is thousands of times faster than flash (Talking nanoseconds, not milliseconds), even more indestructable than flash, uses next to nothing for power, negligable temperatures, cheaper, and may usher in 2TB Ipods

Quote:
Just when flash-based solid state drives are becoming the norm, IBM has developed a new type of solid state memory, dubbed “Racetrack”, that pretty much makes flash memory look obsolete. The new technology uses spintronics, which uses the spin of electrons to encode data rather than the electrons’ charge. The bits of data are stored in the magnetic domain walls along the silicon nanowire, or racetrack, thus allowing for super fast data transfers. The method allows for more energy efficient, faster, larger, and cheaper solid state memory—all while maintaining the same amount of “space” of current drives. In fact, according to IBM, the new Racetrack memory is capable of reading and writing data in less than a nanosecond and could provide up to 100x more storage than currently available drives on the market.

Does anyone even have 1 million songs downloaed illegally? That's a looooooooot of music.


However, there was a time when I thought I'd never come close to filling my 20 GB iPod... I've got about ~23 GBs of music now.. and don't even get me started on movies and TV shows... last count was in the range of 120 GBs.

If someone says "yes", they are a liar. Assumming that you all you have to do is select a song and it is instantly dl'd, and you spend but a mere 10 seconds to get each song completely downloaded and done, and you did this 4 hours a day, 7 days a week, it would take over six years to do it. In reality, assumming a whole 30 seconds per song, it would take 18 years..... longer than the 'net has been effectively running...

My music library maxed out my 8GB sansa and most of the tracks were ripped with poor compression too (128-192 kbps). My library is considerably larger now and encoded as lossless, so I'm guessing that even a 60GB player wouldn't suit me any longer.

Yes, before you ask, I do need all my music at one time.

I do. I have an account at BMG music and I wait for their ridiculous deals. If you refuse to buy stuff for months on end they offer you really weird deals. Last time I bought like 32 CDs for a penny each. All they charged was shipping + tax. Came out to something like $3 a CD?
