It seems that Microsoft and Samsung have just revealed a hybrid hard drive that they've been working on for Longhorn mobile devices. From what I've read, I would definately want one of those in the next tablet or laptop that I buy.

    It would be far easier instead to have a spanned volume on a load of Flash CF cards.... faster too

    This is old school DASD for mainframes.  Dynamic Allocation Storage Devices... a mixture of ram and hard drives.  Cept they never powered off.

    I always liked their three dollar words for everyday stuff.  Like, you don't boot a mainframe... it costs too much, you IPL it.
