The first thing I thought of when I saw the title was storage for iCloud! I guess it could go either way!

I can't wait until my new 2 petabyte SSD shows up for my MacBook Pro. I won't have to carry around my external hard drive anymore. Sweet.

P.S. - I'm pretty sure that Dropbox already does this. I uploaded a file one time (I can't remember what it was, but it was large, and it was a common file. i.e. - something that other users would have already had in their Drobboxes), and while it should have taken 10-15 minutes to upload, I noticed that Dropbox already said that it was all synced up. I logged into the website and sure enough, my file was already there and accessible. Why would Dropbox waste the bandwidth and drive space to store another copy of a file that they already have? They can check file sizes or whatever to make sure that the file is indeed identical and not just the same file name.

Don't get me wrong,,, I love this site, and I also enjoy these rumors or what have you... irt part of my daily routine to log on atleast twice if not more, just sayin that I miss the modmyiphone.com days when jailbreaking was HOT and allot more "active" than it is now.
I think Gizmodo, macrumors are doing a great job on Apple headlines, I always liked this site more because it was indepth with jailbreaking and headlines you would not find on other sites..
It has kind of shifted from modding to the same stories you find on the main apple news sites
Just my thoughts...

More like using the storage for 1080p movie and TV downloading and streaming. You would certainly need many multiples of files, especially new movies that are definitely going to be accessed simultaneously by hundreds or thousands of users.
I see the storage being used for the ever growing App Store(s), iTunes Store, iBooks over an iCloud

Wow...now that's a lot of storage! Wonder what it is really going to be used for? We shall see....
