    Everyone knows the days of mechanical data storage are drawing to an end. It seems likely that disk drives will not exist in another decade.

    This article describes the 1TB and 2TB flash drives that Kingston announced. They are supposed to ship in February, 2017.

    I could see a 2TB flash drive being pretty handy.

    My first computer had 64k...

    I remember when the first 40MB hard drive came out and I thought... wow... I'll NEVER fill that up!

    This article, Kingston's 2TB 'world's highest capacity USB flash drive' costs almost as much as a MacBook Pro, gives the prices which seem to go at least one very above "very very expensive." :devil:

    I'm constantly losing flash drives, but maybe that's because I use the 1-4 gb freebies so I have little incentive to keep track of them. And when I say I lose them, I mean in my house. I'll put a file on one to move to a different computer and they fall into the black hole (that every house seems to have) never to be seen again.

    I'd literally have to chain that 2TB one to myself.

    Yeah do any kind of symposium or conference and they're in every swag bag. I'll never use the space on the ones I have. But I need to save a spreadsheet telling me what's saved on each lol
