fsck 52: Futuristic tapes, SSDs and other storage stories

THIS WEEK we talked about buying used ebooks and the new PlayStation Orbis vs the Xbox 720 vs a new Android device. We then discussed Argus, the Square Kilometer Array, and challenges faced by people who have decided that magnetic  tapes are the best way to storage their exabytes of data. Links after the jump. 


Our Kickstarter of the week was HarvestGeek, and our protip is that you can use Gmail Meter to get advanced statistics and find out how good you are at email.
