SSD Drives, Windows 8, The Microsoft Store, Facebook IPO – HT061

This week Jim, Gary Johnson and special guest Chris Lux bring you the latest installment of the Home Tech Podcast SSD prices continue to fall while hard drive prices continue to rise. Newegg yesterday and today advertised 2 SSD deals at $109.99 for SATA III 120GB SSD’s Seagate 3TB xt 7200 rpm drives are all but extinct. The model that that we bought at $149 before the Thai flood that was recently selling for $429 is no longer listed. Let’s hope that this means the new 3.5 hybrid drives are arriving soon.
