siliconbits writes: Seagate has smashed the storage capacity barrier again today by launching an external hard disk drive with a 4TB capacity, one year after having launched the world's first 3TB drive. The GoFlex 4TB uses four 1TB 3.5-inch platters with an areal density of 625Gb per square inch, spins at 5400RPM and has 32GB cache (rather than 64GB). That said, even with a rather low spinning speed, it should, in theory, outperform faster spinning hard disk drives from 2007 or 2008.
The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact
mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows.
