Really, Really Small Drive

Iomega Samples 1.5-GB DCT Drive: I know that small storage drives are getting ho-hum these days, but 1.5 GB on a drive the size of a half-dollar? The only thing more incredible than that is the fact that Iomega is actually still in business.

“Iomega Corp. said it had begun sampling its 1.5-GByte small-form-factor DCT drive to OEMs, part of a bid to resuscitate the struggling company. The company’s digital-capture technology (DCT) platform is about the size of a half-dollar coin and weighs only 9 grams. Iomega intends to sell the drive to portable device manufacturers as an alternative storage solution.”
