Actually its slightly worse. There are 1024 MBs in a Gigabyte and 1024 Gigabytes in a Terabyte.

With similar disinterest in math, my trusty calculator says that's 1,048,576 MBs in a Terabyte. $900 for 10 MBs makes a grand total of $94,371,840, so it would cost you an additional cool $4 Mill.

And now that my calculator is out, that sum would buy me 943,718.40 Terabytes of GreenDrive storage at today's prices, enough to keep 12,369,500,600 films or 247,390,116,000 songs, which isn't bad.

And if iTunes even had that many songs for sale, at approx $1 per song it would set me back almost half of all US government bailout funds between 2008 and 2009 to fill that space.

I don't want to comment on whether it would be money better spent.
