Give me storage!

1 terabyte hard drives are now commercially available from $500. 1 terabyte is equal to 1000 gigabytes or 1,099,511,627,776 bytes. To see just how much that is, a 1 terabyte drive could hold either:

1,000,000,000 full text novels;
50,000 trees made into paper and printed;
219,902,325 copies of the full works of Shakespeare;
Or one tenth of the entire print collections in the U.S. Library of Congress.
To get your hands on a cheap good quality one, go here.
