WOW: A one-terabyte external hard drive! I’ve got a LaCie 160GB firewire hard drive for video. It works fine, and at the UT computer store I got it for about a buck a gigabyte. Of course, that would still work out to a lot of money for this one. . . . What’s certain is that in a few years, I’ll be saying “only one terabyte?

(Via Gizmodo).

UPDATE: Here, by contrast, is what a terabit storage unit looked like in 1969. I didn’t even know they had those then. Story here. (Thanks to reader N.J. O’Neill). Note the distinction between bits and bytes.
