haha sweet, yeah hopefully soon. i know google has google music, perhaps we could just integrate google music into centrafuse.
Sure, between amazon, google and apple, there won't be much of a need for local storage in the near future, except as backups. Instead of serving your own media, you can just let all your devices, including your car, access the same cloud storage.

Yeah i'm not going to use cloud, i just want a fail proof system! haha i need to buy the sata extensions first
For what it's worth, the SSD would likely be the best option. The prices are getting low enough and size large enough that it is unlikely you will need a secondary drive at this time, and you could also keep an external drive around for swapping occasionally. For most users, the life cycle of an SSD is not going to be an issue (unless you drive a ridiculous number of miles, of course!)
The last review I read was that for most users (and barring hardware failures) it is mostly server environments that need to worry about the limitations of read/writes. While the harsher environment of the vehicle could conceivably affect the failure rates, I'm not certain that would be higher (and suspect lower) than magnetic discs.
As for quality, have not used Intels, but the reviews/rep does seem to be very good!
i use a ocz (vertex- it think) i have heard very little bad about them, and believe they are a little cheaper then intels..
you do not need to watch out so much for the brands as your do the controller chipsets--there are good ones and bad ones..
yeah OCZ and Intel seem like the most reliable ones, then there's Kingston which is very cheap cost wise. I'll do my reading up on SSD's, thanks guys!
i was wrong-- i use a corsair ssd..
