Ya, they definitely should've stopped innovating with this 40 MB beauty from Seagate ($435 in 1978):

My issue is with backing up. EVERY hard drive fails, so how the heck are you going to keep 1TB of data safe? Personally, I hope the need for ridiculous drives like this goes down. Let some central server deal with the data management, and let me just stream what I want, when I want it.

Hard to complain about a TB of space from a drive with good performance... and at more then 2gb/dollar its not really that expensive considering its cutting edge size.
