Who the heck needs proof? They're just names given to big numbers. You just go up by 1024 and give it some new name.

FileFront has a mere 5.73 TB of stuff, so it would be rather difficult to fill it up. But shoobierat has an impressive start... a lot better than my "measly" 15GB pile of files.

I don't see the need for Terabytes on home computers at this time, except for bandwidth hogs that download anime all day long *cough* YourPrinter *cough* Its mostly just for bragging rights IMO.

These things will launch at a relatively costly price, eh?

you can count on it lmao... since when was anything new in the computer world cheap.

As to these things being "unfillable":

If any of you were around in the days of the 486, there were whopping 2 gb hard drives, at that time programs were about 10mb in size, with games maybe being 15 mb.

People at that time were like "oh my lord, how will i ever fill that all up"

today itd be a miracle if you could get windows xp and 1 other program running on a 2gb hdd without filling it up. And on top of that, a lot of games these days are over 1.5gb in size, and the largest I have ever seen, R:TW i do believe, is what 3gb or 4.5gb in size?

HDDs WILL get to/bigger than 1tb, and programs will become larger and larger, plain fact.
