Thinking of tech advances, roughly 20 years ago

I remember a programmer at work being seriously excited because you could buy a 1 gigabyte hard drive for your pc! And it only cost a hundred bucks!! Really big deal.

It's been years since you got a pc or laptop that had less than a 100G drive- 200 or more the last few- and I just saw an ad on Amazon for a 2 TERABYTE external hard drive for $110.

Moore's Law marches on.

We were talking about first PCs the other day, and my 286 running at 12mhz had 2 10mb drives in it!!! Full height drives. People wouldn't know what to do with them now...
