"All the technological advances we have witnessed in the last 53 years has come from a single alien space-craft that crash landed in Roswell, New Mexico in the late 1940's."
I saw that on tv once. You can't lie on tv so it must be true. Right?

Unreal isn't it? my first USB Flash Drive was 32Mb! HA! Now you can get a 32Gb USB drive for $40 at Walmart.

Seagate now manufactures a 2Tb. drive for desktop computers, that is 2,000,000Mb! Can't wait to see what the future holds!

If the price of a megabyte was the same as it was 50 years ago, that 2Tb drive would cost $64 billion.

WHOA! I think those 2TB drives are under $200 on E-bay! Billions! Can't imagine!

Here's an example of the difference in prices:
First laptop $1000
500Mhz processor, 256Mb ram (max) 6Gb hard drive.

Current laptop $500
1.6Gb quad core processor, 8GB installed ram (16GB max), 500GB hard drive.

Wonder where we'll be in 10 years? Star Trek, here we come!

Theres MORE though Carol! LOL! At this point, ALL of the hard drives in the world add up to @ 330 Exabytes, so that's a LOT on information.

kilobyte (kB)
megabyte (MB)
gigabyte (GB)
terabyte (TB)
petabyte (PB)
exabyte (EB)
zettabyte (ZB)
yottabyte (YB)

Each is 1000 times its previous term (Ex. 1000Mb = 1 GB)

Told you I was a BIT nerdy!
