Allegedly, in the latest PC reviewed "the 500GB hard drive offers acres of storage space."Just how many acres of storage space are there on three 3" double-sided platters? My geometry is a bit rusty, but I don't think it adds up to even half a square foot.
click here100 billion bits (gigabits) per square inch of disc space........
That means 500 Gigabytes is about five square inches. I think we can assume that the reviewer was using exaggerating a bit.
Pesala,"My geometry is a bit rusty"I wonder what Pi and Euclid and all the other great brains of their day would think of today's technology if they were to come back?
Interesting that you think Pi was a person;-)
My history is a lot rusty
Prompted me to have a look and found this: "Pi (rather than some other Greek letter like Alpha or Omega) was chosen as the letter to represent the number 3.141592... because the letter [Pi] in Greek, pronounced like our letter 'p', stands for 'perimeter'"
to put a spoke in the wheel,should we not say area in hectares of space,lol.
A hectare is the equivalent of 100 acres.
[quote]A hectare is the equivalent of 100 acres.[/quote]Mo it's not - it's 2 and a half acres roughly...
I checked it on Wikipedia.
