I thought the kidding comment was about Fry's "fast, friendly courteous
service" until I read it a second time.
I saw a terabyte NAS box for $20K -- a price that blew me away. When I was
a junior tape carrier and flunkie at LBL in 1978, I believe our entire tape
library held about a terabyte, kept a couple of operators hopping around
mounting tapes, etc.

I repeat, IBM 76.8Gb ultra dma/100 hard drive at Fry's for $375...
"home of fast, friendly courteous service! (R)"
I kid you not. That's a half a cent a Megabyte for storage.
Not El Cheapo storage but top of the line storage.
Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic. *Why* is Network
Appliance a $23 billion company and EMC a $150 billion company?
[Chris] Rock's lawsuit claims intentional misrepresentation, breach of contract and other allegations. He is seeking $5,075,000 plus interest [from Idealab!]. ''When plaintiff asked about the vulnerability of the '.com' market and the failures of several such companies, defendants' representatives insisted that Z.com was part of defendant Idealab! and that Idealab! would unconditionally guarantee Z.com's buy back obligation under the agreement,'' the suit states. ''Idealab!'s involvement and affirmative backing is what attracted plaintiff to Z.com and provided the motivation for plaintiff's eventual execution of the agreement.'' -- http://www.inside.com/jcs/Story?article_id=18835&pod_id=10
