The Last Hard Drive, Part 2

The truth is, no one knows. The current generation of IT professionals may never see the day the last hard drive is tossed in the trash or sent to a museum. But if the history of the floppy disk, the CD-ROM, or the tape drive is any guide, it will be such a gradual withdrawal that few will notice it until after the fact.
