    Default Seagate’s new 8TB hard drive is for all you digital hoarders

    Solid-state drives get most of the love from gadget sites these days—they're faster and cheaper than ever, and they're a great way to extend the life of an older computer. If you need to store more than a terabyte of data, however, you still need to turn to old fashioned spinning hard drives. To that end, Seagate yesterday announced an 8TB hard drive that's a full two terabytes larger than most drives on the market today.

    Meh.... I think I will stay away. Can you imagine the heat! lolz.. Plus with my interactions with Seagate drives within the last few years I refused to buy any platter drives from them... 8 HD failures within 2 yrs is a pretty bad ratio.
