Would be nice if Slashdot's editors would actually RTFA (or even scan over it) to see if it is what the submitter says it is. It took me all of 15 seconds to say "Hey, this article doesn't mention SSD's at all."

Then the actual article says the opposite of what the submitter is trying to get us to believe: "if you're downloading video and using multiple applications at the same time, an SSD will give you a very noticeable performance boost"

...and I'm guessing the review was written with the same FS on each drive, but we are now seeing new FS's that are better suited to SSD's than HDD's.

'the value of the digital product ... determined by the retail selling price of a similar digital product.'

So if I download a Kubuntu .iso file, I'll be taxed based on the retail price of Microsoft Windows? This is a law (not yet existing) that is just begging to be challenged (when and if it finally does exist).
