When my parents got their first mac, it had something like 1GB or storage. "You'll never use that much!" the salesman said. A few documents, games, and years later... the HD was full. When I got my first mac in 2001, I got a 80GB. It was top-of-the-line for iMacs at that time. "I'll never use that much!" I told myself. Thousands of songs and a few home movies later, the HD was full. When I got my current iMac (2.8 Extreme, 4gb RAM, 750GB HD) I knew it wouldn't hold my stuff forever (I'm getting smarter apparently) but alas, only a mere 3 months later after picking up DVD ripping as a hobby and starting to seriously go through my family's old home videos, it is almost full again! I should have seen this coming, and retrospect, probably would have gotten the 1TB model instead, but in all honesty... what would that have bought me? Another three months? As HDs get bigger, the way we use them changes. When I had my last iMac, I would never have dreamed of ripping DVDs. Theyre just way to big! I would have said but with over 700 available, I started the quest! The reason I am writing this is that I know many of you have the exact same problem. I want to know what you all think. It may be kind of a philisophical answer, and it may really be a rhetorical question that isn't really meant for an outright answer... but my question is: Is there any end in sight? Will this not be an issue in the future, or will technology always be right at the cusp of what we need? Will I always have to work around my storage space and change the way I work based on it? Will storage always be the bottleneck of computing?
