The major - a Petabyte is One Million Gigabytes so yeah I believe that's 1000 terabytes......ehh don't feel like doin the math lol.
I remember back in 1993, I had a PC with a 10gig hard-drive, and I was stoked
Are you sure about that? I got a macintosh in 1995 63MHz, 8mb of memory and an 800mb hard drive at which point 1gb had JUST been introduced and the only people who even needed those were like math professors... cause most people thought ' NO ONE can fill that up' but like you said times change and games are getting huge.
And I think it was halo who says he's only used 13gb of his 80gb, well you don't download like the rest of us
I've had to burn stuff to many CD's or erase a lot of stuff just to prevent my 80gb from getting full and it's a complete backup drive cause I got a 20gb for my main HD.... as for one million gigabytes being filled, yeah I can see it happening cause more than likely in 15 years games will be like 15-20gbs in size lol.
Also I read a thing, similar to the DNA article, regarding being able to put information in a brain cell. I believe it could hold like one million billion gigabytes of data if they could actually write info to it lol, I don't know it was pretty freakin insane. It was based off of 'How fast is our brain in comparison to processors' and 'how much storage capacity does our brain have?'
Our brain can process information at the speed of like millions of processors put together, but unlike a computer we can't actually do an intense mathematical computation in that one second
