Could solid state disk technology do, succesfully, what Steve Jobs couldn't do with magneto-optic storage technology?
Solid state disks (better put, mass storage) is a logical extension of the current trend in solid state memory development. Not only is solid state technology more robust, it offers the potential for very fast access times and high data transfer rates (due the lack of any mechanical moving parts). The problem is, current storage devices (Winchester drives) are cheap and reliable. For solid state to really take off, a killer ap will be required (as mentioned in the article).
