Based on normal human behavior, I would guess that that kind of space would
be used for pirated MP3's, DVD movies and porn.
Hey, that could be a hot new business idea, shipping harddrives full of
mediocre porn that would save people the effort of downloading it from
usenet. Something like, oh, I don't know, stickydrive.com,
naughtydrive.com. We could even strike a delivery deal with Kozmo or
similar outfits. "We will have porn to your door in 30 minutes or its free!"
This sounds like a winner, can someone on the list get me some VC money
Just wait for the 30 second superbowl commerical and the Thanksgiving
