IBM "pixie dust" breaks hard drive barrier

Author: JT Smith

CNET: "In each of the past five years, hard drive capacities have doubled, keeping storage costs low
and allowing technophiles and PC users to sock away more data. However, storage buffs
believed the rate of growth could continue for only so long, and many asserted that the
storage industry was about to hit the physical limit for higher capacities. But according to IBM,
a new innovation will push back that limit."
