Very cool piece of visual goodness from Flickr user Curtiss Spontelli showing the evolution of storage. The one thing this doesn't take into account is how radically different so many of the modern devices make our home media ecology. These new storage devices both simplify and complicate our landscape in so many ways ... just a few years ago I had separate devices to manage my music, movies, Internet, photos, and more right in my family room. Now I have a Mac Mini -- I no longer have a dedicated DVD player, CD player, or even an Apple TV. The same device that offers playback is also a massive storage device.
I will say I am thrilled I am no longer swapping the 400K 3.5" disks my original Mac 128K came with! I'll take a speedy TB portable drive any day of the week.
