The wild and wacky frontier of hard drive technology is always full of surprising new ways to keep those drive capacities growing, and this new patent for leaking nanotube-housed lubricant onto disc platters is no exception. Apparently, a heated hard disc is capable of cramming more data into clo...
It may not have the same "wow" factor as
advances such as holographic
storage or perpendicular recording
(and probably doesn't have a funky flash video
showing off its features), but Fujitsu has plans to increase hard drive capacity using advanced lubricants. The idea
seems fairly simple:...
