Today we talk about buying things that are sent to you via digital distribution. Well not just anything- movies, software, music, tv, books, apps, movies, etc. Content providers are giving us these things through the Internet with zero packaging and zero guarantee if you lose them. We try to decide if this is good or bad for both the consumer and the company. This discussion then brings us into the wonderful land of net neutrality.
Today’s discussion centers around Solid State Drives — flash based hard disks that are a significant improvement over conventional spinning disk hard disks that are more common. Although conventional disks are becoming cheaper and higher capacity, SSDs are also riding the economy of scale and Moore’s law distribution and will be an important technology of the future.
