My Annual Flash Drive

Every year for the last eight or nine years, I have purchased a new flash drive that doubles the capacity of the year’s previous for around $20 and this year was no different. My 128GB drive is on its way now and I’m consistently surprised at this sort of thing. This flash drive has more storage capacity than most of the computers I’ve own (not my current one which has a terabyte, and not the previous one which was 500GB, I think) and this means I should be looking at 256GB next year which is insane…

To coin a phrase from Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, “What a fascinating modern age we live in.”
