In the beginning, computer users used flat, plastic squares, known by the ancients as floppy discs. Floppy discs only held so many megabytes of information but now consumers can buy hard drives that contain over a million megabytes of space, known as a terabyte. Not only have storage capacities changed, but what types of information that users wanted changed as the digital age came.

The digital age describes the moment where everyone came in contact with and became fully dependent on technology to get information and get it quickly. They were in luck. Apple created the iPod for music that users could play anywhere. Other companies started to create eReaders for digitized books. Though digitizing a book may seem weird, there is actually a very high demand for eBooks. So much so, that the Library of congress has begun to digitize their collection.

The Library of Congress holds more than 32 million different books. At last

count, they reported that 15.3 million of them have been digitized for people everywhere to download them. That information equals roughly 74 terabytes and the books vary from classical literature to textbooks. And the possibility for this new technology is endless. College students who are pursuing traditional or online educationcan carry their textbooks in their laptops or eReaders wherever they go. Elementary students can do the same once their schools issue them special eReaders. Not only will this new technology save the back of children all over the world, but it will also save the planet.

As eReaders and eBooks become more popular, a time may come when printed word will become relatively extinct. Many people now are migrating to online sources for their newpapers; it won’t be long until they change to eReaders for keeps. Only time will tell, as it often does, with the continued innovation of media technology.

The amount of information that is now available to you with just a few clicks of the mouse is mind-boggling. As technology rapidly changes in the digital age, it will be amazing what comes next – Maybe a device that mimics the human brain’s storage capacity.
