I would imagine that the terabyte would be made up from a number of drives and not just one.

that a person who lives and works in a modern city, drives a car, and watches TV and films, uses a computer, goes on holidays and generally lives a modern life, receives and processes more audio-visual input in an average week than a person who lived in the seventeenth century received and processed during their entire life.

No doubt there are some people who need a terrabyte of storage space, but they are few and far between, and they can't have much else going on in their lives if they find time to access and absorb even half that amount of data.

I shan't be standing outside the shop at opening time.

Considering Bill gates did not think that people would use more than 1mb of information and look where we are at today. in 97 i upgarded to a p350 and it came with a 9.7gb that was the max that computer companies were using now a few years on the norm is over 100g to 200g i dont think we are far of with the way computers are going just look at microsoft media centre have all your films, music just about everything you could imagine, so no not know but not to far away.
