lol that’s true. I mean storage space has gotten cheaper and cheaper but as that happens, our capabilities and needs get bigger and bigger.
Five years from now, what you consider a big disk drive will seem pathetically small. The computer you think of as fast will seem like a dinosaur.
That’s been happening less and less but it’s still happening. Still, it blows my mind that a computer that’s 5 years old can run a good amount of anything out there. The evolution of computers was UNBELIEVABLY fast in the 90s and you were out of date so fast, they didn’t even bother making computers fashionable things really. It was all about RAW SPEED AND POWER and storage.
I have a 2TB external hard drive I bought maybe two years ago. The mere idea of a terabyte was unbelievable just a few years before that. Now 2TB is nothing.
I’m looking forward to 100TB drives being as cheap as my 2TB drive was, or SSD becoming the norm. Or system memories of 256GB being boring and everyday. It wont’ be long. Meanwhile, I keep trying to stretch the limits of what I have each time I get something.
I think our graphics capabilities is where a lot of big changes have been happening. But the stuff they’ve been able to do with smartphones will hopefully translate to the desktop… video editing on the PC is a chore but on my little iPhone 5s is amazing, even though my computer is technically more powerful.
Oh well I’m babbling
