With the explosion in technology and our dependence on it, some things get lost in the shuffle. Some things that we take for granted and only start to yearn for after we run out of it. You all know what I’m talking about: battery life and storage space. Since I only have time at the moment to focus on one, let’s talk about storage space.
I’m not that old but I’m still old enough to remember the days of floppy disks to save files. Those old and – by today’s standards – ridiculously big and clunky things had very little real storage space and took up a lot of physical space. Back in the 90s, we thought that that floppy disk was the gold standard of storage. It was back then. After that, I remember the beginning of flash drives, portable hard drives, and the such. Then, in very recent memory, beginning with Apple and now offered by Google and others, came cloud storage.
Considering our ever-increasing dependence on technology in our everyday (perhaps even “every moment”) lives, it is no surprise that our need for more storage space is growing along with that dependence. Fifteen years ago, no one could have imagined that virtually everyone would thousands upon thousands of songs saved to their phone.
We’ve also started storing a lot more stuff on our actual computers. As phone storage grows, so has our need for computer storage. Today, SanDisk unveiled one of its newest, and perhaps coolest, offerings: a 128 GB USB 3.0 flash drive that is only the size of a dime. It’s so small that SanDisk is marketing it as the flash drive that you never need to remove from your computer. Essentially, that means a significant boost to your PC or MacBook’s overall storage capacity. And, for a price tag of only $120, moderately affordable for those who need more digital storage capacity in their lives.
