Hard Drives Obsolete

For years I have used drive space like a Pixar render farm...  Starting years ago as a timeline designer and coder at AVID...  back when it was costing me something like $3K for 10K spin Cheetah SSCII drives for 250meg storage...

At last count I had 50 external drives before I donate 30 of them to Salvation Army (ok not sure who is shopping there for old high speed SSCII drives) but it felt nice to unload lots of metal that I will never use again...  Getting back to the whole reason of this posting...  Shopping yesterday at good old Best Buy I picked up a pocket size 1TB drive for $89 and an external USB 3.0 3TB for $129... like $40 per TB... simply amazing...  Now Have have to find time to consolidate my other drives onto a few 3TB drives..

Can't wait when my phones will have multi TB local storage...
