That’s 60 euro for a 500 GB drive on Amazon. Crazy stuff. Here are some of my older calculations of the dropping cost of storage: For investing US$10 a month, you’ll have accumulated 15 petabytes of storage space by 2020.

Year—price per 1 Gig
1980—500000
1985—80000
1990—9000
1995—1000
2000—15
2001—6
2002—3
2003—2
2004—1

2008—20 cents for a gig!
