1 TB disks about to appear

Seagate is set to start shipping 1TB disks. For those keeping score, that's about 3 times the disk space in the first public edition of Google. Note: I'm pretty sure the bandwidth to the disk is not keeping up - disks like this new 1TB disk get their relevance from large files not lots of files.

(Bonus: The 1998 Salon story where I first heard of Google)

(Bonus II: Carrying one of these home from the office would provide a sneakernet bandwidth of approx 4 Gbit/s)

I like that sneakernet ;)
-- btw, can you provide full content rss, please?

That is, unless you think that Hacks is a important visual and aesthetic experience...
