The price of everything, but the value of nothing
January 30, 2009 — LAKE FOREST, Calif.– WD announced the first 2 terabyte (TB) hard drive – the world’s highest capacity drive and the latest addition to WD’s popular, environmentally friendly, cool and quiet, WD Caviar Green hard drive family.
What can someone do with a two terabyte hard drive?
It’s past midnight, and Rocky sits in front of his wall of computer screens watching the Nikkei approach prices last seen in 1982. He thinks of Oscar Wilde’s quote: “The Cynic is a man who knows the price of everything, and the value of nothing.”
Rocky thinks Oscar Wilde’s quote is an anachronism: “The Cynic is a buy-and-hold investor in the Nikkei who fills a two terabyte hard drive, and needs a second one.”
Rocky is a curmudgeon but not a Cynic. He smiles as he checks on his sleeping family, and quietly climbs into bed.
