    In related news, Toshiba announced its new laptop ballast tank. Just attach to laptop and fill with water to keep your new laptop from taking off!

    <What took them so long?>

    Data density on those old disks would have been orders of magnitude lower than the new toshi. Hardly surprising it has taken the technology a while for them to be a commercial proposition.

    Plus it took that long to develop the ballast RG mentioned. It is several degrees more complex than either of the above.
