It’s a heavy burden to sometimes think about the fact that our personal data is starting to be measured in terabytes – that’s 1,000 gigabytes. Thought of another way, that’s close to a half a million songs, or a slightly fewer films, innumerable eBooks, documents, and maybe a few hundred games for the idle moment.

While there are a lot of smartphones that resemble tablets in size and function. And one is really a smaller or bigger version of the other. But still, people usually buy one of each.
