True. I looked at this rule after posting. I always thought of it as a general computer term. things doubling was the standard for lots of things for a while.
In general RAM capacity, RAM speed, CPU speed, Bus speeds and HD capacity all followed this rule. Whenever anything was upgraded, it was usually double the previous years speed or capacity. Computing in general always seemed to follow the rule. Even going from single core to dual to quad. all are attempts to upgrade and all were in doubles.
