"Wake me when the price of 1 TB of SSD gets to within shouting distance of 2x that of 1 TB of spinning rust. It will happen, just not soon."

I doubt whether there is any serious disagreement between you and the article's author. It all depends on what you mean by "soon". If I am an end-user, then "soon" might be a few months. If I am an investor, "soon" might be a few years.

If I am me, and talking purely about my personal purchases, then I may already have bought my last platter of spinning rust.
