    Hey, Saint Crispin was born on my birthday. Cool.

    I think I’ll celebrate by buying a new pair of Bruno Magli’s.

    I was dissapointed that Blizzard didn’t announce a new game of any sort during the conference. I assumed the 5th class of Diablo would be revealed, but also took for granted that they would have another big-news hitter to steal the show. Next year for sure then, right?

      I’m hoping that Heart of the Swarm is out before the next Blizzcon but probably not. :-/ It could very well be your next big release from Blizzard.

        I thought* I read somewhere that they were looking at an 18 month time-frame?

      It had better be about The Lost Vikings, damnit.

      There really is no reason SSDs need to be in a hard drive form factor for laptops, given their typical one drive capacity. I think we will see sockets in the back where you can plug in a stick of SSD (just like RAM) and keep the 2.5 inch drive as a spinning disk for large data capacity. That gives more flexibility than the hybrid design.

        Personally, I think cheaper 64, 128, and 256GB SSDs, which should arrive shortly, will nearly completely replace mechanical storage. If not this coming gen, then the next one.

          • Voldenuit
          • 9 years ago

          Boot drives and laptop drives probably. Definitely won’t replace the multi-terabyte drives.
