Some hard drive manufactures include as part of their sales pitch the number of songs that can be stored on those 1 and 2TB (Terabyte) hard drives. A 2 TB drive is rated at 500,000 songs. If each song only lasted 3 minutes (a search on the web returned that the average length of a recording is more than 3 minutes), then some quick math shows that your 2TB drive would be able to store 1,500,000 minutes (25,000 hours) of listening time. Since a day is only 24 hours long thatís 2.85 years of listening to music 24x7 assuming that:
1) You never slept. 2) Did not take time to eat. 3) Never worked to earn money, you wouldnít have time to work listening to all the jazz. 4) With no money you would not need the time or have the money to pay your bills. Who likes to pay bills anyway? 5) No money, no new clothes. I suppose you could listen to music while taking a shower or washing your clothes if the water company hasnít turned it off for not paying you bill. 6) Can someone go 2.85 years in the same set of clothes, could be a new Guinness Book of Records but you would not have the time to tell them. If you want to find out hereís the link, Iím too busy listening to music. http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/ 7) Hereís good news, for someone whoís still using Dial-up it would take you longer to download the next song than to listen to it. 8) Donít forget to schedule an appointment with you Ear Doctor (thatís an ENT in case you didnít know). Do they schedule appointments that far out. 9) 2.85 years in the future they will have 10TB drives. 10) I tried looking up in the total number of songs published on ASCAPís web site but no luck. Who care anyways, my work is published with BMI and thatís no lie.
