If you like that, have you heard that Seagate predicts a 37.5TB HDD within a few years?

Wow that's precise. Those will be the days that the odd 500GB will be neither here nor there, I feel :)

Yeah, there's a reason. Basically, the prediction is actually the storage density, which they say will get to 50 Tb within the next decade. The article (http://www.wired.com/news/technology/0,72387-0.html) extrapolates that to a current 3.5 in hard drive area, giving the 37.5 TB figure.

Did anyone see Wired on PBS HD last week? Something about viruses as storage, and memory that can be injected into a being. I think Panasonic has taken over or is funding research now. I didn't catch it all so sorry about lack of details. Google wasn't much help.

I started to watch it lastnight, but the Larkers were on TNT HD

Wow, so eventually we could just store the FLACs directly in our brains and then we wouldn't need to listen to them at all :)

If that 50Tb prediction in 10 years relates to hard disk type storage, what about solid state memory?

RAM sizes at the moment seem to lag behind HD type storage by a factor of about 1/100, i.e. currently 4Gb RAM is readily available versus 400Gb HD's.

So are we looking at 500Gb RAM (or possibly 1Tb) within 10 years? I like the idea of not having little HD's wizzing away in the attic for my server.
