I just got ripped off...

Google finally got me...

I overran the free storage limit on my google account, and they made me pay $20 for another 10GB for a year. What a rip!

I could have bought a TB network drive from Dell for $179.

Let's see ... that's 1,099,511,627,776 bytes at $179 (call it $200 with tax and shipping) or $0.00000000018 per byte.

Take 6 or 8 zeros off and I'm still getting a whopping, I coulda had a V8, headache.

My first 1 TB storage system was the Digital StorageWorks Enterprise Storage Array we introduced in 1993/4. It came in 3 fully loaded 19" racks and cost over a million dollars.
