1PB Storage, $17,8800 Not bad eh?

So today while looking at the tiger direct deal for a $149 1TB SATA drive I wondered "just how long before someone has the 1PB (Petabyte) system. Well quick search into google and I found one. Check this article out.

What is interesting is that a 1GB Seagate drive in 1995 cost $849, today, a 1TB drive for end consumers (13 years later) is only $149 at Tiger Direct. So how long for the 1TB drive?

Doing the math you can get 1200 SATA drives, chain 'em together and get 1PB of storage. A bit pricey for me though.
