Personally, I can't comprehend something that large. How would you describe it?""That's like 12 stacks of books that each reach from the Earth to the sun. Or you might think of it as 3 million times the information in all the books ever written, according to IDC. You'd need more than 2 billion of the most capacious iPods on the market to get 161 exabytes."

This comes as a bit of a shock really, and though the blurb reads that they're selling because they're unable to keep up with the demand — despite all the money they're making. It's possible that their inability to promote anything to the front page without it being buried quickly due to some smart Diggers within the last week or so has crippled their two bit operation. If you check out my last post you can see how to check up on the latest user/submitter stories with my application. There's a new version already developed — just waiting for them to try and cripple the original before I release.
Happy Digging in the future all."
This policy memo was initialed due to the recent action by the U.S. Department of Transpertation placing a ban on these new Microsoft Products stating...
"there appears to be no compelling technical or business case for upgrading to these new Microsoft software products. Furthermore, there appears to be specific reasons not to upgrade."
I think it makes sense for my company to do this. As the old saying goes "If it's not broke, don't fix it". So, are there other companies out there that are enacting a similar kind of policy?"
