Appendix K

Mass Storage Devices

Personal computers are quickly becoming multimedia machines. The demands that multimedia is placing on computers are rapidly filling up all available storage space. As a result, many people have switched to optical storage technology and external mass storage drives. If Moore’s law holds true, what will happen to computers over the next decade? How will technology keep up with development? How will information be stored and transmitted over time? How much data storage will people and businesses need? How much power will be required to run a personal computer? Most of all, how will you keep up with all the knowledge needed to manage those computers?
