ONE DAY ONLY: A two-terabyte external hard drive for $94.99. I wish everything got better and cheaper at the same rate as electronics. I remember when a 10-megabyte (yes, megabyte) hard drive was something, and cost several hundred bucks.

I worked for Computer Shopper magazine from 1993-2001, and when I started there, we carried ads for 1 GB SCSI hard drives, for $10,000. They looked like something you would mount to the deck of a battleship with lag bolts, and were easily the size of 2-3 ammo cases.
Now I can get an 8 GB SDHC card for $13.

Glenn, I have a 1982 Byte Magazine with an ad on the back cover marveling how for only $6,000, you too could own the very latest in storage technology: the 5-MEGABYTE Winchester hard drive.
Only 1200 bucks a megabyte! Such a deal!
As you can tell, I might have been in this business too long.
Like I say, if only everything got better and cheaper at the same rate as electronics.
