Unlimited iPod

It was just a year ago that everyone was talking about a “1 Terabyte iPod(1 Terabyte Ipod)”:http://www.libraryplanet.com/2005/12/02/ipod. Apparently, we were thinking small.
bq.Speaking at the FT World Communications Conference, Nikesh Arora, Google’s VP of European operations, told delegates that, in the coming years, the plummeting price of storage and its increasing volume-to-size ratio will give iPods almost unlimited potential to hold music and video. Arora said, by 2012, iPods could launch at similar prices to those on sale now and yet be capable of holding a whole year’s worth of video releases. Around 10 years down the line that could be expanded, creating iPods that can hold all the music ever sold commercially. He said: “In 12 years, why not an iPod that can carry any video ever produced?”- “Jo Best(Google: iPod will hold all the world’s TV in 12 years)”:http://hardware.silicon.com/storage/0,39024649,39164360,00.htm It will be interesting to see if this amount of storage is really becomes necessary or if high-speed wireless connections will have made that pointless. Either way, the “next few years(Seven Years until Petabyte)”:http://www.libraryplanet.com/2003/02/24/petabyte will be quite an exciting time.
