“I need some space.” Often times we hear those dreaded words between couples after a disastrous affair. But sometimes, we computer-users can sigh and replicate the same sentiments. If you need the extra oomph, now is a good time to be alive. WD has again increased the already humongous capacity of their drives, releasing 8TB of goodness into the known world.
