My first computer didn’t have a hard drive. I thought I was pretty cool, in fact, because it had two floppy drives. I was stylin’.
Nowadays everyone has a hard drive, and flash drives, and a back-up drive, and I’ve yet to ever hear anyone say, “You know what? I really think this is more storage than I need.” More storage is more security and more funny-faced pictures of the kids, and that’s always A Good Thing.
Today at Buy.com you can pick up the Fantom G-Force 1TB hard drive for just $99.99 shipped. Seriously, one terabyte of storage. For under a hundred bucks.
SHH! Don’t let this get out to my husband. When he bought a 40G, he said, “THIS is enough.” Then we bought an 80G, and I heard the same professions. Yes, yes, he’s looking for more.
I went into shock the first time I saw terabite storage available in a store. Literally, my dad had to shake me a couple of times to snap me out of it. My first computer had an external cassette tape player as storage (Atari 400 that came with 4K of memory).
I like that’s it’s G-Force, otherwise I’m not really interested.
