Hard drive speed limit is reached

The limit of hard drives has apparently been reached. But at least its not likely to affect the production of drives for some time:

The bad news is that this upper limit means that the fastest data can be written using changes in magnetisations is 435,000 million bits every second.

The good news is that this is still one thousand times faster than the best magnetic hard drives in use today.
