Default New HDD read heads could significantly boost capacity

The new sensor would also use slightly less power than current read heads--an especially useful feature for laptops and MP3 players. And it could improve the speed of the reader. "You could read back data ten times faster," Vopsaroiu says. "Instead of one GHz, you can read at five to ten GHz."
