Itty-Bitty Data

I know we've all grown kind of inured to the general advancement of technology, but isn't it weird how you can store, like, a terabyte of data on a tiny memory card about the size of a fingernail? That fact still amazes me (as someone who grew up in the era of floppy disks trying to figure out how to cram one more 12-kilobyte document on a medium that was the size of a piece of toast)!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to try to find a terabyte of data somewhere on my very cluttered desk . . .
