Subject: Terabyte Hard Drives On Their Way?

Are you one of those people who have a growing collection of MP3s (or pr0n) growing on your drive and find that todays 120Gig drives just aren't enough storage?! Well, fear not, for Fujitsu has the answer for your storage capacity woes. Granted they say the technology is several years from being mainstream, it still sounds tasty:

San Jose, Calif., May 08, 2002 - Fujitsu, a world leader in hard disk drive technology, has developed revolutionary new read head and media technologies that will enable hard disk drive (HDD) recording densities of up to 300 gigabits per square inch (Gb/inē). The new technologies are expected to lead to the commercial introduction within two to four years of 2.5" hard disk drives with capacities up to six times the recording density available today.
I'm thinking 4 of these drives (4 platters in each drive), stripped up in RAID 0 would ofer some uber storage capacity.
