I like how this is all nonsense and someone bothers to publish it. I'm sure if the entire world devoted itself to basic maintenance and making hard drives it could do it quite easily if the precious metals for platters didn't run out first.

it'd be more like $150 trillion or something. Something's gotta control those drives

Which is why this chart is worthless except for the "wow" factor.

Extrapolating forward another 17 years... by the year 2027, a yottabyte should only cost around $10 billion. 2044, $1 million. And by 2061, all the way down to $100.
Are you calculating that based on the idea that every 17 = 1/10,000th? If you somehow find what exponential rate it is increasing then it should be much sooner when it hits $100.

im fairly certain we have enough silicate to make a ****ton of glass or ceramic platters aluminum is a tad bit harder to come by.

but the sputtered medium is what is a bit harder to manufacture, and thats most likely what we would run out of.
but you know, i dont think we would be using a ferrous medium in that age that we could make this is so...

I think an interesting comparison would be to look at how much a Terrabyte would have cost you in the past.

Also:

Yottabyte: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes.
Yobibyte: 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes.

Difference: 208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes = 190,016,926,000 Tebibytes.

Man, those hard drive manufacturers would take a lot of space off you. This is why we should label things with the binary suffixes, and properly, rather than the old ones. It's already quite a difference, but when you get to much larger amounts, you loose a hell of a lot.

I'm with you on that, I hate how they abuse this system.

You buy 640GB of HDD space, plug it in, hey look only 596GB is available... Oh right... 596 GiB !!

I think Windows still shows GiB as GB btw... not sure, I'm not at home atm.
