Nobel physics prize goes to German and Frenchman投稿日: 2007年 10月 10日
Over the past decade, hard drives have shrunk to the size of postage stamps while their storage capacity has improved fifty-fold, a feat that can be traced to Albert Fert(L) and Peter Grunberg, seen here in April 2007 file pictures, who won the 2007 Nobel Prize for Physics on Tuesday.(AFP/File/Toru Yamanaka)
Fert joked about that in an interview Tuesday, when he said his iPod, loaded with jazz, was busted.
“It’s my fault because I got an iPod with a GMR hard drive,” he said. “If I had an iPod with a simple flash memory, it wouldn’t be broken.”
