Seagate ships new "hybrid" drives…

Seagate's memory drive hanging out on table

Congratulations to my sponsor, Seagate, for getting on TechMeme this morning by shipping its first hybrid drive (a drive that has both flash memory inside as well as a hard drive). Seagate is working on a bunch of cool stuff. I got a look recently when Seagate’s CEO, Bill Watkins, had a bunch of us over his house for a press dinner. That drive above is Seagate’s first all-solid-state hard drive. Bill wouldn’t tell me how much memory is inside, but says it’s more than the industry is expecting.

In this video Watkins talks about its moves into the hybrid drive space.

Disclaimer: Seagate is the sole sponsor of my show which means that no one else pays to get onto my show, something I appreciate very much because it lets me have commercial conversations without worrying about where my paycheck is coming from.
