Steve Jobs finally did it. He raised the ax over the heads of the HDD industry signalling for death to yet another technology.
I'm so excited that the new MacBook Air only has flash memory for storage. Apple is going to sell millions of them, and other manufacturers will kick into copy-cat mode. Demand will go up further, faster; supply will ramp up to meet demand. Prices will fall, HDDs will eventually die.
The first shot has been fired. It's only a matter of time. At no other point before now has there been the momentum to carry this transition through. Now we have it.
