The sweet spot in storage now costs about 50c / GB just for raw disks.
Of course google pays less for disks than do you or I, but those disks
also have to be put in something, so you end up with an all up cost of
$X / GB, where X is rather less than El Reg said (shock! horror! El Reg
gets something wrong about google! Film at 11)
