Please include definition of refrigerator carton. Also, what is the average storage capacity of a floppy disk? 00:08, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

These days refrigerators come in cartons for safe storage. Also you can open them to store floppy discs, which is a lot easier than trying to load them in soda cans. Especially the unopened ones. -- Weatherlawyer (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
But what is a refrigerator carton? What do you mean they "come in cartons for safe storage"? What's a carton? Is it a cardboard box that fits a whole refrigerator? A wooden crate? A bunch of pillows surrounding the fridge? What is it?
When I do a Google search, I find cardboard boxes with insulating liners designed to hold dry ice, regular ice, or other cold and possibly leaky ingredients, which is not what you said. I think that's what Randall meant. But mostly my searches yield an almost random assortment of cardboard boxes which are coincidentally associated with fridges in some way, which suggests it is a term Randall uses but not one recognized by the general public. Since these are so obscure, the article should probably explain. At a minimum, we need a volume estimate, which we can't really get from the context, since both floppies and SD cards spanned orders of magnitude of storage at the time.EebstertheGreat (talk) 04:01, 26 May 2023 (UTC)

A soda can of then's microSD cards could hold the whole iTunes library then. A soda can of now's microSD cards could hold the whole iTunes library now. I do not see the issue or what seems unreasonable. 02:55, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Changed “January 2021” to “November 2022” as it has remained that the maximum digital storage size commercially mass produced and available for microSD cards is one terabyte. SilverTheTerribleMathematician (talk) 07:26, 8 December 2022 (UTC)

Updated to May 2023. As of February, 1.5TB cards have been available. 2TB cards might be available relatively soon, likely in less than 6 months, but we'll see.EebstertheGreat (talk) 04:10, 26 May 2023 (UTC)
