Think back. Way back to when having just one gigabyte of storage was considered ridiculously impressive. A lot of things have changed since then and as such, we starve for more capacity in a smaller package. Seagate wants to deliver. Based on their calculations, they should have a 1.8-inch hard drive with 1TB of storage by 2014.
I know what you’re thinking: that’s still seven years away and I want to have a one-terabyte iPod *now*. Well, too bad, you’re just going to have to wait like everyone else. If you’re willing to pack on a little extra girth and accept a 2.5-inch platter, Seagate hopes to pack a terabyte in there by 2013. This is all based on 40% annual growth, which is the current trend.
