6. The Future Of Computers

is shifting away from moving parts, as they fail, and hard drives are the last element of computers with moving parts.

SS (solid state) drives keep getting larger and prices keep declining. I was surprised how small of a price bump it was to swap-in a SS drive in my latest laptop.

I do have my own 'cloud', consisting of large high rpm hard drives, but that's not accessed all-day long/every day like the drives in the computers.
