275GB iPod drives by 2009

Seagate today announced during a keynote presentation celebrating the 50th anniversary of the hard drive that 1.8-inch hard drives -- such as those found in the iPod and similar players -- should reach 275GB of storage by 2009. The massive storage increase is possible simply by scaling existing techniques, according to Dr. Mark Kryder of Seagate. Additionally, 2.5-inch laptop hard drives will likely triple in capacity to 500GB, while desktop-sized drives should reach a 2.5TB upper limit. The rapid advancement of storage is crucial as games, music, and HD video consume ever larger amounts of data, according to Electronista.
