    Should be noted that the 1GB is going to the SD card, but damn, thats a big install. I imagine the quantity going to the internal storage isn't exactly small either.

    Guess you can't get a refund on it either since no way you're done downloading in 15 minutes. Still pissed at Google for that.

    I remember being in a Mac shareware club in San Diego, we would get a floppy or two loaded with stuff every couple weeks. I also remember I had Doom 2 on SEVEN floppy disks :p

    Then again our first hard drive was 40 megabytes.

    True, even on WiFi it'd be tough.

    I am sure there are others who can beat me, but my first computer had a 10mb hard drive.

    And my first copy of MS Word came on 12 floppy disks!

    Damn kids! Get of my lawn!!!

    Japanese RPG's have had countless unnecessary video cutscenes since the day before forever. No surprise it's the first 1GB mobile game

    I bought Windows 95 on floppies. What a fucking mistake that was.

    LOL. I had that, too, but I do think I ever actually used those disks. Word, on the other hand, I installed many times. What a PITA.

    Loading Windows with a crapload of floppy disks.

    Not fun.
