 - Hard Drives from Hell?

   Look for some new NINE GIGABYTE hard drives to debut at Comdex in
   November.  They are likely to be 3.5" units in fact.  Guess that
   fancy 250 meg tape backup is going to seem pretty small now, huh?

 - Micropolis' super-size IDE hard drive

   Meanwhile, Micropolis is shipping a new 1.2 GIGABYE 3.5" IDE drive.
   Reports say that it is faster than the company's own SCSI drive of
   the same size.

 - IDE Expanding

   Western Digital is reported to be coming out with a new IDE specification
   that will allow more than two devices.
