The Bad Old Days
Seagate has announced a brand new hard drive: 750 gigabytes for $559. To put that in perspective, the first hard drive I bought, back in 1984, cost about $2000 and stored 20 megabytes. So 37,000 times as much storage for about 1/4 the price. That hardly makes up for all the money I lost when the dot-com bubble burst, but it's a start.
