Bytes keep gettin' bigger

If, like myself, you only follow memory prices and disc capacity intermittently, you'll be surprised by what Costco's offering.  In my monthly spam from the giant retailer, amongst featured items such as Hooked on Phonics and the Kidkraft outdoor furniture set, is the Calvary 2TB personal disk array.  Wasnt it not too long ago that two terabytes  was an entire datacenter? (Ok, maybe Im getting old).  

I wonder how long it will be before 2TBs will fit on a thumb drive or the 2 petabyte personal disk array debuts?  And whats beyond "yotta"?
