I'm been using my MacBrook Pro with a 1T SSD since 2013. I know, I know it's an Apple product. But, still a fine machine and been running for over 3 years so far.
I long for the day when the "next big thing" makes computer HDDs as obsolete as 8-Track tapes.
A couple of my PCs have had SSDs for a couple years. I'd have to have the pockets of Putin to replace my 40+TBs of HHD space. We're a LONG way from replacing HDDs for mass storage.Can't be too long, SSDs have done that for many uses already.
Huh, can't catch an STD if you're the richest man in the world? Dang, I should work harder!!! Probably turn a billion years old before I even get a billion dollars, but....Heh!
Naw, they said on the boob tube yesterday that he's the world's most wealthy human being. Gates came in second.
One thing I excelled at compared to the other adults in the household was math. This was because after I finished Biology at USC, but failed to get into medical school like they did, I went back for Computer Engineering. (I ended up dropping out, but finished all the math requirements before I did so, with flying colors to boot!) I don't remember the prefix Exa, Zil, as in zillion I have, but not exa. Must be something new as I haven't been practicing the fancy stuff I couldn't understand for a while now. (One math class I remember all I was doing was regurgitating answers, or the pattern of solutions to get the answers. The professor sent a student last day before the final my email address. He had missed the review session and the professor knew I'd have the "solutions/study guide". Unluckily I was having trouble "faxing" him the review material and I didn't verify if he'd received it. I still feel bad about it until this day. It's been about 16 years now...)I imagine Putin could contact an STD.
He could also afford a few Exabytes in non-volatile RAM. That's just a bit out of my price range, pocket change for him though.
An Exabyte is 1,024 Petabytes, or 1,048,576 Terabytes. It's a buncha digital data, heh. Then comes Zettabyte and Yottabyte (named after Yoda). There doesn't look like they've come up with a name for a larger unit ... perhaps there's no conceivable need for one (yet).I don't remember the prefix Exa, Zil, as in zillion I have, but not exa.

P.S. I was last enrolled in college 36 years ago, and took a vocational course in programming 32 years ago. So, my neurons have more cobwebs than yours do, LOL.
Now that is some breakthrough stuff! Might explain why my sluggish vacuum tube TV is still getting first run M*A*S*H episodes . . .. . . the process of taking a large silicon wafer and designing the process to produce as many chips on that one wafer as possible. She said that they had to prove that their method would work to make the "circuitry" inside the many chips that would come of it, that their goal was to get as many chips out of the wafer as possible.
