230 gigabits of data per square inch

That's Hitachi's claim they will eventually get to once this shift to 'perpendicular' recording. Apparently you can get the magnetic grains closer together if you pack them perpendicularly rather than longitudinally. Since I assume you still have to put the grains in some sort of predictable order (one after another) does that mean that the poles of the grains point away from the center of the line of grains?
