Era of the Mega, Giga and Tera

In the 80’s we had megahertz speed processors, megabyte sized disks, and kilobit speed wans with megabit lans.

In the 90’s we still had megahertz processors, but gigabyte sized disks, megabit wans and 100 megabit lans. wireless was megabit.

Here we are in the 2000’s and we have gigahertz processors and soon, terabyte sized disks. On the wan side we are in the multiples of megabits still but lans are gigabit. wireless may reach the gigabit with UWB.

We may never have terahertz processor cores.

What will he do with terabyte disks and terabit lans?
