Tiny Seagate Drives In Portable Audio

If you are the happy owner of one of these portable mp3 playing type devices, you are probably not happy about the quantities of space available. Wouldn't it be better to be able to have your entire collection, or at least a good bit of it, right there in your pocket?

"Seagate Technology announced that its tiny hard drives will spin out tunes for portable music players made by Creative Technology. Creative chose Seagate to supply disc-drive storage technology for its new portable audio product lines, starting with Seagate's new ST1 Series hard drives, the companies said on Tuesday. In June, Seagate introduced the ST1 1-inch drives, which are designed to hold up to 5GB. Hitachi and other rivals make drives 1-inch in diameter, but these do not store as much data."
