Western Digital (WDC) plans to launch hard drives filled with helium gas next year, using technology from its Hitachi unit. WDC boasts the drives, which will be aimed at the lucrative data center market, can lower power consumption by 23% and increase capacity by 40% over current models. Seagate (STX) has traditionally held the upper hand on WDC in the data center market, though both firms are now facing tough competition from flash storage providers such as Fusion-io (FIO).

    Whatever WDC and STX are presently trying to do they are still stuck using 19th century Edison era turntable technology - HP seems headed that way also. It's a losing game. If they continue this method they will be following the buggy whip and 8 track tapes straight into oblivion. Get your heads out of the sand boys and girls the world is changing and it won't wait for you.
