Almost as soon as we brought a baby home from the hospital I had a computer set up for them in their room. The kids have grown up never knowing what life was like without a computer available to them. Every couple of years the computers get upgraded to newer technology to ensure that each member of the family has the appropriate technology to meet their needs.
I have noticed that at each technology refresh junction the data storage needs have grown exponentially. Early on I could get away with a small hard drive that would store not only the operating system and programs but also all the data the user would need. As the kids have grown, their needs have changed and so has their appetite for storage.
