CNET News Daily Podcast: Seagate gets into SSD market
Good news for hard drive hogs, storage maker Seagate is getting into the solid state disk market. The bad news: for now it's only for high-end servers.
Monday night's big news was that hard drive maker Seagate is dipping its feet into the solid state storage market. The company is limiting its first efforts to the server market with a 200GB drive, which means you won't find one in this year's holiday gift basket. However, if things go well we could see consumer models sometime next year.
We also talk Google's Chrome browser coming to Mac and Linux, a new fast track for green patent applications, and the unveiling of Virgin Galactic's crazy looking spaceship that will take people out of this world for a mere $200,000 Earth dollars.
