29.0 Petabytes. How many mp3's do you think this would hold?
Now thats what I call MASS storage
Well it's early in the morning but by my calculations, a petabyte is 1,125,899,906,842,624 bytes so 29 is 3.676186771475307e+31and if your average song is 4.5 megs you will get 6,919,669,561.444 songs on there. Oh you have to love too much free time. I hope I'm right.
I doubt their is that many recorded songs in existance. But I could be wrong, and probably am.
Well, it is a tape library. Not sure I would want to keep my MP3 collection on it. It is like a giant DAT machine. Also note this:
Since MP3s are already compressed, you would only get the 11.2 Petabytes of storage. (only - that's funny). I would get about 8 or 9 Xserve RAIDs and a cluster Xserve, a fiber channel switch a rack and a pdu instead of the Sony deal. Give me online storage.
All for only $126,000.000??!?!?!?!?
i like the whole aspect of .444.
it's like its going to have to be a song at about a minute and a half.
Searches iTunes for Punk/Ska playlist...
Closest one I have to 1:30 is "F--- You and Your Cat" by Goldfinger at 1:19.
my closest to a minute and a half is No Doubt-A Little Something Refreshing. It's 1:18. Really funny too.
hmm I have plenty of songs that are under a minute.....
anyways, outside of serious medical, scientific or government uses I can't imagine anyone who would need that, or afford it.
not corporate usage?
eh, I don't think so...
There is no way THAT is portable.
the basic weighs 859.80lbs
not portable at all. i mean unless if you are that strong.
