Is this not silly?

Back when I started using computers, in 1983, we used to store things on C15 "computer quality" audio tape, which the spectrum wrote about 600kb a side on. Nowadays I carry around about 1.2Gb of storage around with me casually without thinking. Worse, including a computer more powerful than that spectrum, the whole lot fits in a volume comparable to that of a C15 audio tape.

Not that anyone's ported ManicMiner to the Nokia 9500 yet.
