See what I did there? It’s Frankenstein combined with computer! No, we’re not talking about monster computers this week (although that would be an awesome show topic, comment below if you want us to do that!) we’re talking about building your own computer (that makes you Dr. Frankenstein to be technical). Just try not to zap life into it with a lightning bolt- that, like static electricity, is bad for computers.
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.
