YES WE CAN HAS!

// So Much To Say. /

Bay Area readers may have in the past couple of years seen, heard of, or otherwise encountered the curious San Mateo hypergraphia chick that wrote all over her house and car. I was recently told that her San Mateo house was no longer painted up, so I dug up some news.

People are weird.

Also, know how I've spent the majority of my life insisting to all of you that you should buy nothing but Seagate brand hard drives? WELL.

ALSO also, Dolce & Gabbana made my new iGoogle theme. Pimpest sell-out evah. WWJW?

As a matter of fact, due to your previous post about Seagate drives, I took advantage of the sale and now carry around my own TB hard drive with all my data on it. My computer is much happier now. :) Still, that's really cool that they managed to get data off that drive!

The main reasons I've been so stunningly pro-Seagate:

1) In enterprise IT departments I've worked in or known people from, if someone cares about drive brand, 9/10 times they'll favor Seagate over the rest. IT departments deal with A LOT of drives.

2) ~70% of the "spectacular data recovery" stories I've heard have involved Seagates.

So it's not so much that I'm claiming they never fail - in fact, I've had one (9 year old scsi) fail on me even, as well as a DOA once. It's about their integrity, support, warranty, and ability to have strong recovery chances if the data's vital enough that you're willing to pay for recovery procedures.

I second you on the Segate drive thing. I'd rather pay more for less space on a Seagate than pay less for more space on a WD. That said, though, I have both in my machine right now. And a Seagate of mine did recently bite it after many years of service.

I get my seagates on sale so they're the same price as the WD&cs. They usually go on sale at least a couple times a year, and I plan "waiting for the sale" into my disk schedule.
