It's About Stinkin' Time

Computer technology has progressed much over the past 20 years, but one thing that continues to irk me is hard disk technology. With all the wonderful junk you can stuff your computer with, you still need something in there to store stuff on, and this thing just happens to move at several thousand RPM and be prone to mechanical failure. It's 2005, folks, get rid of the moving parts.

SimpleTech announces today that they are releasing a solid state hard disk with an SATA interface. Solid State Disk (SSD) technology should provide much better performance and be easier on the ears. I just wonder what type of heat they will generate.
