Toshiba Breed's Huge People

Toshiba today announced at the Consumer Electronics Show, the result of a successful project to breed huge humans. Industry insiders suspect that with Moore's Law starting to crumble, and physical limits on lithographic technology causing tremendous problems on the continued minituarisation of a range of devices, that the solution was to breed huge people, which in the words of a spokesman, "...obviously have huge hands...".



Results of this programme are demonstrated in the above photographs, showing large humans (TM) to scale against a traditional 40GB SCSI drive.


As can be seen from the above images, the technoloy has also been applied to children, in attempts to bring school bullying to a historic end. Rumours that Toshiba have in fact just announced a tiny hard drive, are being dismissed as ludicrous.
