That's a 30 percent increase in stored information from 1999, the last time the global study was conducted.
i was just reading an article in a PC mag the other day that was talking about a guy who's on a crusade against spam. he estimates that about 30% of all emails are spam. interesting.

That figure has recently been found to be quite a bit higher, and at one time, I heard it actually surpassed legit e-mail. Mail, after 3 weeks, is starting to get the hang of my particular Spam problem.

Regarding that article, I doubt the 800Megs per person is very meaningful. I wonder how the figure that out - through harddrive sales? I've got the entire second season of STEnterprise on the drive right now. They must account for repeated data like that, and MP3s
