Technology is constantly changing, sometime the incrmental changes happen so often we don’t reflect on where we once were compared to where we are today. We’re all so used to thumb drives by now that we hardly even notice the recent capactity changes. At the recent CES show Kingston revealed its DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 unit with one terrabyte of capacity.
You read that correctly, a tiny 2.8-inch by 1-inch thumbdrive runs at USB 3.0 speeds and comes in 512 GB and 1 TB sizes. The price is as yet unoffical, though you can probably expect it to be astronomical (about $900) until volume and competition forces a reduction is wholesale pricing.
Maybe it is important to pause and consider the changes in technology from time to time.
