Technology and age

I got an email from Amazon today advertising (among other things) this Seagate 1 terrabyte (!) USB drive for US$145.

When I bought my first computer in 1984, I had the option, which I did not take, of having it include a 10 megabyte harddrive for an extra US$1000.00.

1 terrabyte = 1000 gigabytes = 1,000,000 megabytes.

Pardon me while I feel old.
