I see it quite coincidental that when I had my incident with my HD
that I began to just article in various mag regarding data recovery and HD
Those other things, the little USB drives, first of all why can't anyone come up with a standard name? I got a 128-meg Jumpdrive, I've heard of flash dirve, pen drive, thumb drive, portable mass storage device, DELL calls them 'memory keys', etc...
Anyway, these things have no moving parts yet they function like a hard drive. Hard disk drives have moving parts, failures are imminent (sooner than other computer parts) and they have limited warrenties and cost a bunch.
This fall supposidly there will be the 4-gig version of the USB mini-storage device (another name
). These things are durable and for now, smaller. I would figure that eventually they will be big enough to put them into a mainstream computer or PDA and replace the HD
, extending the life of the storage.
What do you think? Do you have what I'm talking about:
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
