This picture was taken while trying to install XP and Xubuntu on my machine without a CD. It’s quite clear how the data storage media has shrunk with the passage of time. The biggest disk here has a 2GB limit and was taken from an old dell laptop. The CF Card is 2GB as well, taken from a relatively newer Canon camera. The 1GB SD card is from my XDA and the teeny weeny micro SD is from my brother’s new ASUS EEPC. According to Kryder’s Law, the storage density of the magnetic media doubles every year. This probably means we would be able to  fit a whole book at the tip of out pens real soon (and may be come up with an ‘auto-write’ pen which can just copy paste the text when we want).
