Rememeber TDK? They made the blank tapes you used for those mix tapes that creeped out all the ladies in high school. Well they're getting the brand back together, baby! With gear hot enough that it might even help you score.


TDK has announced a new hard drive at CEATEC that manages to fit 260 GB of data into a 1.8-inch form factor. Using their prototype TMR head, TDK is able to attain a surface recording density of 803 gigabits per square inch, besting Toshiba's previous 378 gigabits per square inch. The leap was possible by combining the TMR head with recent perpendicular magnetic recording techniques, and TDK personnel still think its possible to reach 1 terabit per square inch.
