"I save all my personal files (mostly Word and Excel documents) to my USB on a roughly weekly basis."

Last time I looked a USB memory stick could hold up to 2 gigabytes of data.

Last time I looked Big Beige Boxes were shipping with 160 Gigabyte drives; Laptop computers with 100 gigabyte drives.

Sure, it wi’ll take a few months to fill up your hard drive, but your music and photos are consuming how much space?

I bet you don'’t know.

All that time spent downloading music from the web, ripping your CD collection, uploading photos and movies from your camera.


Certainly not fitting on a 2 Gigabytes memory key.

I just searched my Big Beige Box for "“MP3"” files and found 10,853 files for a total of 24,471 Gigabytes. You will, of course, tell me that you don'’t have that much but I don'’t believe you. I don'’t believe you’ve actually ferreted out all the stuff you have stored on your hard drive.

And anyway, it's certainly more than 2 Gigabytes.

And it does include those priceless movies of your grandchildren.
