500 GB Hitachi harddrive for Notebooks

Japanese company Hitachi announced notebook series of hard drives with 500 GB capacity. Few weeks ago, i wrote about first notebook with HD RW drive for the first time ever. This time, i'm writing about Notebook series with 500GB massive storage first time ever.

The half terabyte Travelstar 5K500 is a 5400 rpm with 3 GB/s SATA interface. And, it will be available in the market worldwide in February. Previously, larger capacities were made available using multiple hard drives in RAID arrays. But this is 500 GB in single 2.5 inch drive for the first time targeted towards Notebook.

hahaha, Merdurian, indeed 500 GB is huge for now, but not for later on. Some desktops have 750 GB harddrives for personal use,mostly on RAID configuration. But 500 GB for small 2.5 inch size drive is incredible. It's massive. and yeah, i would love to store whatever i like if i own one.

people are in dilemma, which one to choose, if we really have to choose HD or Blu-ray.. .. because, overtime only one of them would exist or may be i'm wrong .. but whoever wins, it's kindda lets see and watch.. thing for the time being.. i think HD will win since, Toshiba already released HD-DVD RW and, lots of people are thinking to shift that way.. but i still urge, it's just wait and watch condition for the time being..

Hi Speed bro, we don't need to own anything to get ourselves known with latest trend and technology. And, i bet one day, you'll be playing with notebooks.. :)

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
