Every file you ever owned on 1 disc
In 1974, Mike Thomas was making five-meg disk packs - the biggest in the world, at the time. But IBM, Burroughs, Honeywell and other major computer makers said no one would ever need that much storage. In 1989, Bill Gates said a PC would never need more than 256 kbytes of cache memory and 40 megabytes of hard drive storage. And yet today's PC has on average 64 megabytes of cache and 20 to 60 gigabyte hard drives. In short, Thomas predicted the need for mega storage systems in 1974, and he's still at it. In fact, as far as he's concerned, the need isn't diminishing - it's increasing.
