Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Kinda blows my mind..

I saw a bargain deal today that reminded me of Moore’s Law, and how much things have changed since I first started working with “personal computers” (and hard drives were 4 Gigabytes..)

A quality 32 Gigabyte ‘smart’ thumb drive (aka “memory stick”, aka “flash drive”) for $12. (And I’m not talking 1990’s dollars, either, but today’s, basically valueless dollar.)

Of course, it’s not just the cost-per-Gigabyte I’m impressed by.. but some may remember buying devices called “Zip drives” so we could have a whopping 100 Megabytes of ‘portable storage..
