Punch me baby one more time

IBM will leave the Hard-drive business within the next three years. So sad, it seems. Their little Travelstar drives are so cool. There is a 48GH one in my PowerBook right now. (I think it is, because I can not hear it at all.)
They will give it all to Hitachi. Why would they do such a thing?
There is obviously something on the horizon that goes beyond the spinning discs of Hard-drives. How about Punch-Cards? Yeah baby! Soon Hard-drives will be about as cool as floppy discs, (the big, soft double sided kind.)
The future is back!

How cute are little ones... : )

Gads, that brings back memories (no pun intended). My first programming class for my BS degree was with Fortran and punch cards. Just don't get the cards out of order!!
