We knew it was all floppies for him, anyhow.

"You know, back in my day, our hard drives were gigantically large, swollen pieces of hardware."
"Yeah, and they only worked have the time."
"But they were massive! Now, I'd like to ask you, young lady, where you'd like to store your information? On those little flash cards kids have these days?"
"Gramps, you're such a nerdvert."

The hard drive in my MP3 player has more memory than the HD I used previous to the one I have now, by a factor of 3, and is smaller. (60GB vs. 20GB)

The CompactFlash memory card in my CAMERA has more memory than my first hard drive, by more than 2 ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE, and is probably less than a thousandth the size. (1GB vs. 4MB)[factor of 256)
