Pax Behaving Badly

Spinning magnetic media is cheap.
They sell 12TB cartridges for less than $140

Of course the drive itself is still over $3000

But yeah, the physical storage of data has gone from needing rooms to one row on a rack.

As you can imagine, having 12TB in the same space that used to hold 700MB is quite the difference. 17,000 times.

Yeah, it's grown much more over a longer period of time. But given the age of people here, imagine instead of 1 CD you now have 17,000 of them in the same space.

This just means that there is no reason not to archive your Uber trips, in case a bad pax allegation surfaces later on. LOL.

Despite big numbers we have now that doesn't mean we have more space than past
the size of videos (4K+HD) and high resloution pictures are 10 times bigger than old video format and 300*300 picture in time of CD 700MB 😁

Now 2020 SSD should have been the only storage for retail and normal users but manufacturers didn't care

Does this need to permeate every single thread?
Going forward. Bans will be issued to any users (and really it's just 3 or so of you) that brings this up as a non-sequitur, and infects the other threads.
This joke is played out.
If you want to have a conversation in the appropriate threads and address anything that @RideshareDog is talking about. Do so.
Making asinine jokes about how you feel about his communication style will be deleted.

Had a fight almost break out at 530am yesterday. 3 pax all in the back, the bookends were chirping the entire ride when the dude leans over the middle dude and threatens the girl up close. Idiot

I slow down as if to pull over, middle pax calms things down and we move on. Sketchy motel pickup but a 4.80+ and my AR is gold low.
