SSD is the heir apparent, but platter based disk storage will likely provide higher capacity at denser, more affordable prices for quite some time to come. I suspect Google is proposing this altered platter HD design as something that could bridge the gap until SSD reaches an affordability / density point that can catch up / replace conventional platter HD designs.

But those only happen once every several hundred million years. And they take about 100 million years to complete, they're not rapid.

Not necessarily agreeing with the previous poster, but I'm under the impression that geologically speaking 100 million years is somewhat rapid for that sort of change at least compared to Earth.

Well maybe not. As long as we're pouring on the Jurassic Park references, there was another line "your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should."

The animal has been extinct for a short time, but none-the-less the norm in northern Spain for the last 9 years has been to not have ibex. Reintroducing cloned ibex to the area might cause other issues that hadn't been considered.
