Two iPhones with 512GB storage each have more total storage than all Commodore 64’s ever made (about 15 million) combined.

@thomasfuchs
I only ever used a c64 once (because age and having never given a shit about games) ... but somehow this is strikingly weird to consider

@thomasfuchs Armed with this knowledge I still wouldn't trade my C64 for an iPhone.

@thomasfuchs Pains me to think of the $1000 I spent for my first 10 megabyte hard drive! My camera takes single photos larger than that!

@thomasfuchs Can't get that C64 RAM math to work out. 15000000 × 65536 = 983040000000 whereas 512 × 1024 × 1024 × 1024 = 549755813888

@thomasfuchs ..and yet the iPhones will still eventually run out of space if left unmanaged for any length of time.
