I was reading this article, "Hitachi hard drive at heart of new iPod" and began to think of how amazing hard drives are today. When at school, I remember a professor talking about how the head of a hard drive moving across it's platter was like a commercial airplane flying only feet off the ground. With mini drives, like the one in the iPod, imagine shaking the earth while the plane flew around... quite unreal that they don't fail.
