I have 61 GB of mp3's on my computer. That is 12,000 songs. If I had downloaded these songs from itunes, it would have cost $12,000. I listen regularly to about 2,000 of them. I usually get full albums and then add my favorites to the list that I listen to all the time. Ask him how many songs he has. I haven't downloaded anything in ages, so if I never delete anything and start downloading again, I guess I could get up to 200 GB's. I have the ipod with the highest capacity because I didn't want to run out of room, but it is only half full. If you set up itunes correctly, it won't make its own copies of your music.
I was a computer programmer and systems designer for many years back when the word gigabyte hadn't been invented. Back then, when you wrote a program, the most important thing was to make it use the least amount of memory and storage as possible.
That guy said he had to downgrade the internet, not his computer, not his operating system, to play the game. Huh? What does that even mean? Dropping back to firefox 3 from firefox 7?
When I first got cable internet, they send people to your house to install it. I had set up a custom network connecting my house's computers. They had never seen such a thing, so I had to show them how to do the installation I was paying them for. Actually before I set up the network, I had asked for advice about it from "experts" and everyone said it couldn't be done, but of course, it worked so they were wrong.
But you should be happy that everyone isn't a computer expert. If that were the case, there wouldn't be any jobs for people who really know computers.
For those who don't know, including SBR: there is a difference between memory and disk space: disk space is where you store all your files, like your music, programs, documents, etc. Memory is what your computer uses while it is running programs. Look at task manager when you are running programs - you can see how much memory is being used at the time. And 300 gigs of memory is a huge amount. Does anyone have that much memory on a PC? Right now, I am running a bunch of things, and my computer is using less than 3 GB.
My disk space, however, is 2 TB, which is 2048 GB.
