It is not "Ferrari red," you philistines!

It is "rosso corsa."

Ferrari's official colour is yellow, the national racing colour of Italy is red

What does this have to do with the penis size of middle-aged men in Florida and LA?

So what happens when you slap on a Type R sticker? Does it reach ludicrous speed?

"You can now fit more than 100 Hollywood movies on the average machine."

Let's see one of my 2TB drives... 2TB being very common.

219 movies*, 33 TV series (most multiple seasons, all complete unless still playing), with 308GB to go.

another drive...

264 movies*, 8 complete TV series, 53GB left on that one.

*Movies can be either 1GB AVI/MP4 or 5-6GB DVD video_ts folders.

So even with 100GB set aside for operating system and software.. 100GB set aside for pictures and documents, etc.  if you were to limit movies to be 1.5GB files each... a 2TB (which is 1.76 real space after format - minus 200GB for OS and other files) should hold about a thousand movies. (I calculate approx. 1100 )

If you go with only HD, which you can get for about 3-4GB per movie, that's still over 400 movies.

I think someone needs to do more math and research before writing an article.

Apply that same math wizardry to the space delusions, tell me what you get.

Quantum Apostrophe: Apply that same math wizardry to the space delusions, tell me what you get.


Considering that they aren't actually proposing much more than a "groundbreaking paper", so it's so far off that I won't sit on my hands waiting for this to come out anytime soon.  So not saying that it doesn't have possibilities, but, we'll have to see if they can make this happen.. a bit like the several solar power improvements that keep being announced but have yet to be out (and same with batteries).  I'm still waiting for the electrical car that can be lined with solar panels which would run the car directly and recharge  batteries for night and no-sun situations.

Also, the SDXD format is theoretically able to reach 2TB, so for size, an SD card compared to a hard drive, we are talking to possibility of:

Grabbing a 3.5 hard drive and an SD card:

6 long x 3 wide x 7 high = 126+ SD cards in the space of a single hard drive x2TB = 252 TB (all approx. numbers), so apply proper controllers to make these as solid state drives, capable of >500MBps speeds.

At this point, well, an array of a few drives would be more than enough for most.... (I would think).

BTW... SDXD cards have already reached 128GB...

So 20 of those, are a fraction of an hard drive's space, so it's happening.

And SSD have already hit the 2TB mark.
