All of us at SUU know about the cool Jump/Flash drives that have made college life so much easier. Toshiba and SanDisk recently announced the release of an 1 gigabyte flash drive that runs 40% faster than the previous generation. I remember when my parents bought a brand new computer with 2 gigabytes of memory. Everyone said that we would never need that much space. Now that is hardly enough memory to do all the things school requires. Does the increased supply and reduced cost of memory cause an increased dependency on its use? Why don't companies work as much on making files smaller, more accurate, and more efficient as they do on increasing memory capacity?
