2010 - 1st Fizz in the SSD Market Bubble

Editor:- January 14, 2010 - StorageSearch.com recently published a new article - 2010 - 1st Fizz in the SSD Bubble.

I think SSD analysts will look back on 2010 as - "Year 1 of the SSD Market Bubble." Greed will play as big a part as technology in shaping the SSD year ahead. Wonder why? ...read the article

New Image for Cloud Storage

Editor:- January 13, 2010 - a new article on PCWorld.com discusses on-low cost and no-cost cloud storage offerings from Google.

The author David Coursey (and his commenting readers) make some interesting comparisons with Microsoft 's SkyDrive.

Personally I loathe the term "Cloud Storage". But I have to admit we're stuck with it. So today I changed the graphic on the online backup and storage page.

The old one - with the tag about "Spellerbyte was cooking up a new business plan which involved online web backup" - was appropriate when it was first published 10 years ago - but no longer fits this market's image today. I resisted the temptation to use an image compatible with the business metaphor of "sad losers" or "big black hole for VC investors."

CES SSDs Mostly Preannounced Before

Editor:- January 8, 2010 - storage related news coming out of CES was a disappointment to me - because nearly all the major news about SSD products had already been preannounced (and covered on these pages) in the months leading up to the show.

If it's not new - and we've already talked about it - it's not news. That's why editorial arising from this event has been sparser than expected. SSD marketers in many companies have got into the habit of preannouncing products anything upto a year ahead - as part of the SSD Bubble. In that way they hope to get multiple shots at web visibility. It doesn't work that way here on StorageSearch.com. My purpose is to save you time - not to waste it.
