Hey Seagate, here's a business idea for you

The paper mountains will stay with us until such time as write-only media become as common as today's hard disks. We need storage sub-systems that never, ever delete anything. Storage systems that automatically - at hardware level - ensure that updates are stored as new versions and that delete operations are really archive operations. To be widely adopted, we need the confidence that only legal standing can bring to the evidential reliability of such devices.
