The passage of time, things get smaller

USBs.jpgThe advance of technology renders the world of technology and computing an ever-changing landscape. Things get smaller and with it, the amount of data you can shoe-horn into a USB drive. Even optical disks are going the way of the dinosaur with downloaded media being well, the medium of transaction.

This leads to higher capacity of USB drives catching and by far eclipsing optical media.

The funny side of this is that the smaller the item, the easier it is for me to lose. That has never changed.
