Sunday 27th July 2014: 5.52pm. I forgot to post my annual SSD vs magnetic hard drive capacity per inflation adjusted dollar graph which I updated in May, so here it is. The trend of deexponentialisation of SSD capacity per dollar growth has continued as I first predicted in 2012 (, and currently SSDs are growing slower than magnetic storage which implies they will never catch up in terms of capacity per dollar. ...
