Space program

Something from the spring of ’06, which I’d pretty much forgotten about:

Seagate is readying a 750 GB external hard drive that connects via FireWire or USB and ships with backup software for both Windows and Mac.

There remains approximately 750 GB of space on my current internal drive, also by Seagate, capacity 1000 GB, seventy bucks at Newegg when it’s not on sale. (Right now, it’s on sale.) That eight-year-old bruiser? $559.

Then again, I’m old enough to remember this, and I’m hardly alone:

Radio Shack hard-drive ad from the 1980s

I ripped half a dozen songs — not full CDs, just individual tracks — to MP3s yesterday. I’d have to have two of those Radio Shack drives to store them.
