How Small Can You Get It?

I have decided that I am getting really really old. I remember when you thought that having 128K of memory was magnificent. You were on top of the world at how fast things ran for you. Now you can get flash memory in an itsy bitsy stick that contains 4Gig of memory. 4 Gigabytes. One Gigabyte is approximately 1000 Megabytes or 1,000,000 Kilobytes. 7800 times more memory in that little stick than what you find in the computers I used when I first got started. Scary thought huh? Wonder what my boys will think about this when they get older. They already think I'm older than dirt and lived with the dinosaurs.

Remember when we were at PJC and the floppies were 9"? They were the size of dinner plates!
