From Weird Universe:
Hitachi recently announced that in 2010 they plan to unveil a 5TB hard drive. This led them to note that, “By 2010, just two disks will suffice to provide the same storage capacity as the human brain.”
Of course, nobody knows exactly how much memory the human brain actually holdsóthe method Hitachi uses has something to do with counting synapses, which is maybe too linearóbut somebody on Digg points out that Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation had a 5 terabyte capacity memory in his brain, which can only mean one thing: line up for your androids now, kids. And prepare to run in fear when they turn on you.
