This Decade's "Gigabyte"

Back in my day (when I was 10 years old, just before the tech boom), I used to spend my nights fantasizing about the possibilities of a 32-megabyte harddrive. I remember being once arrested for learing at the Mac Quadra AV (it might have been "AV PRO"... who knows). But how could I not lear? It had 64 megahertz! The 68040 Chip! And "AV"? Oh, that means it plays audio and video!!!! Now that's high-tech shit!

Fast forward 12 years, and I read about a PC hard drive which stores half a terabyte... My PC has a gig of RAM. And you know what that means? The word "tera" is about to enter daily geekspeak. So that's all I have to say about this matter... Now I'm kind of wondering why I bothered informing my audience about this news-like-item.
