Sun Crams the Entire Internet In a Box

k3_md_picture06OK, so the entire Internet is already in the box on your desk, and possibly most of it fits inside your phone, but Sun’s (s JAVA) partnership with The Internet Archive means that 3 petaflops┬ápetabytes of archived web pages is also stored in a shipping container.
