New Feature: RSS Feed of Storage Prices

At right you will see a new link to an RSS feed for prices in the storage market. I have a program running here that tracks daily average prices for two popular sizes — 80Gb and 120Gb — and you can now subscribe. It has been running privately for a few months now, so there is a rich data archive underneath what I am displaying publicly.

Why would anyone care about this sort of information? Well, it could be because you just like knowing average hard-drive prices in popular sizes; but more likely is that you’re interested in the economics of technology. It could be as an investor in WDC et al., or it could be as a macro equity strategist, but either way price trends in storage are worth watching.
