Multi-Bit Storage appears in announced SSD

SSD DriveStorage – nobody can get enough – but these days it’s the transition from standard hard drives to SSD. SSD will provide for the future of mobile devices, with it’s shock resistance features, the biggest challenge now is getting SSD up to the capacity people expect to get with a notebook.

The days of getting a notebook with a 4GB hard drive are over – today people are enjoying their complete media libraries on their laptops. I have one laptop primarily used with the television with two hard drives in it – and they are needed with media. Some SSD based notebooks have started to appear, but their lack of overall storage capacity may keep them from selling too quickly.

USB 3.0 on the horizon – can you say Optical?

Today at the Intel Developers Forum a new specification for USB 3.0 was released. This new connectivity standard will be completely backwards compatible and enhances the existing connection with some optical, yes – fiber, strands thrown in the mix.

Best part? It will offer ten times the existing bandwidth of USB, which means nearly a 5 Gigabit connection. While it may be some time before we can utilize such a fast connection – I’m sure something will have it slowing down in no time!
