Fujitsu's 'Nanohole' technology breaking GigaByte barrier in Hard Drives

Around a decade ago, when i was using a MS-DOS 6.22 and some sort of dark-age office applications which didn't have today's GUI rather interlaced/scanlined GUI(very troublesome to eyes glaring for longer time) has evolved with times. At that time, i was taught that Bill Gates once(may be 1980) said that 640 KB ought to be enough memory for anyone. I was using MS-DOS 6.22, had 5.25 inch drive, around 640 KB of conventional memory when hit mem.exe DOS command and no harddrives at all. Everything ran off the 5.25 inch diskettes. Programs were counted on bytes and kilo bytes. We didn't dream of having Gigabytes of hard drive space and physical RAM. But time has changed gracefully.

Right now, i've 2 GB of DDR2 physical RAM on 3.06 GHz HT processor and 80 GB of harddrive space. At the current context, 80 GB is very minimal but that's not bothering. I mean looking back at time, i never dreamt of GB's of drive space but it has become reality now. I mean everything kept increasing. Size of programs,softwares,GHz speed,storage,memory.. everything. There are some barriers though.

Till date, we've read of Terabyte(it's 1024 GB technically) and the structure of our current harddrive will allow us to have only to the limit of 1 Terabyte of storage. There are already 750 GB hard drives in market and they are quite expensive for the time being.

Fujitsu's(a harddrive manufacturing company) 'Nanohole' technology is breaking that barrier very soon in coming days and we'll be playing with terabytes of storage at mere 2.5 inch size of two platters hard drive. Smaller the drive, more efficient and power saving would it be. That's what engineers from Fujitsu claims. The implementations would be Mobile devices and laptops. They say it can occupy 1.2 TB of storage.

Prashant Tamang -A Nepalese in Indian Idol 3

CONGRATULATION !!!! PRASHANT FOR BEING INDIAN IDOL Here in US, we don't have Sony channel, may be there is but the region where i am, we don't have.

For his support, lots of people are convincing people to vote for him. People are relating his victory with nation's pride which i don't like.

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
