"Company hopes to produce a 100GB flash drive that could replace a hard drive. Samsung Electronics hopes that falling prices for flash memory chips will mean solid-state memory can eventually replace hard drives in laptop computers and other devices...."Martyn Williams, IDG News Service Fri Jun 24,10:00 AM ET "The South Korean company recently made its first step towards this goal with the announcement of a prototype 16GB drive based on flash chips. Flash memory has several advantages over hard-disk drive storage: it consumes less power, it has higher resistance to shock, it's more reliable because there are no moving parts, it can read and write data faster, and it's silent in operation. But there's a major hurdle to mass-market adoption: it's much more expensive."
The only easy day was yesterday.
