I have a single terabyte is taking a while to fill that, and only people that store lots, an lots, and lots of movies and audio files that I know are filling up multiple 4 TB external drives.

Microwave Tech Could Produce 40 TB Hard Drives
in the Near Future:

"We’re all generating data faster than storage providers can keep up, and that problem
is only going to get worse. On Friday, Western Digital announced a potential game
changer that promises to expand the limits of traditional HDDs to up to 40TBs using a
microwave-based write head, and the company says it will be available to the public in

Hard drives sure have come a long way...

I can finally modify my Commodore 64 with a 40 TB drive lol. Now to find a big fan to cool it off.

Quantum Computers Mainstream in 2018 and race
ahead of Supercomputer power:

"Quantum Supremacy is when quantum computers become faster than classical
computers. Once Quantum Computers surpass classical computers they will continue to
improve at a FAR more rapid pace. Doubling the transistors on a regular chip might
achieve double the performance doubling the qubits on a quantum computer can provide
an exponential speedup depending upon the kind of problem it is trying to solve. Dwave
has shown speed ups of 10,000 time or more by doubling the qubits in their quantum
annealing systems.

This week IBM Q scientists announced that they built and measured a 50 qubit processor
prototype. IBM aims to demonstrate capabilities beyond today’s classical systems with
systems of this size."


Is quantum computing going to leave Moore's Law in the dust?

Move Over Moore’s Law, Make Way for Huang’s Law:

"An exuberant Jensen Huang, who gave a keynote and popped up on stage during
various events at Nvidia’s 2018 GPU Technology Conference (GTC) held in San Jose,
Calif. last week, repeatedly made the point that due to extreme advances in
technology, graphics processing units (GPUs) are governed by a law of their own.

“There’s a new law going on,” he says, “a supercharged law.”

Huang, who is CEO of Nvidia, didn’t call it Huang’s Law; I’m guessing he’ll leave that
to others. After all, Gordon Moore wasn’t the one who gave Moore’s Law its now-
famous moniker. (Moore’s Law—Moore himself called it an observation—refers to the
regular doubling of the number of components per integrated circuit that drove a
dramatic reduction in the cost of computing power.)

But Huang did make sure nobody attending GTC missed the memo.

Just how fast does GPU technology advance? In his keynote address, Huang pointed
out that Nvidia’s GPUs today are 25 times faster than five years ago. If they were
advancing according to Moore’s law, he said, they only would have increased their
speed by a factor of 10."

Those are some bold words from the buttery smooth Huang.

How Quantum Memory Could Change Computing:

"In a hot tub in 2012, physicist Seth Lloyd pitched a quantum internet application to
Google’s Sergey Brin and Larry Page. He called it Quoogle: a search engine that, using
mathematics based on the physics of subatomic particles, returns results without ever
actually knowing the query. Such an advance would require an entirely new kind of
memory, called qRAM, or quantum random access memory.

Though intrigued, Brin and Page turned the idea down, Lloyd told Gizmodo. According
to his story, they reminded him that their business model was based on knowing
everything about everyone.

But qRAM as an idea hasn’t died. Today’s computers are quite good at remembering
data represented by billions of bits, binary code digits that can equal either zero or
one. RAM, or random access memory, stores the data short-term on silicon chips,
assigning each piece of data a unique address that can be accessed randomly—in any
order—to refer to the data later. It makes computer processes much faster, allowing
your laptop or phone to quickly access the RAM for data frequently used by programs,
rather than the storage, which is much much slower. But one day in the future,
computer processors might be supplanted or augmented by quantum computer
processors, machines that would be good at searching through huge datasets,
machine learning, and artificial intelligence applications. Quantum computers are still
a nascent technology, but if they’re ever going to be able to run these potentially
lucrative algorithms, they’ll need to access RAM in a whole new way. They’ll require

“[QRAM] would be an amazing application, and make the kind of quantum devices
that Google and IBM make today instantaneously useful,” Lloyd told Gizmodo."
