Terabyte and TeraStation

When talking about storage capacity, the correct term is Terabyte, with a single R. The incorrect form Terrabyte has to have something with ground and soil, as in terra firma.

Along the same tune, the Buffalo product is called TeraStation, meaning a "station where terabyte stops", not Terrastation (which could probably mean a spaceport or subway station, or some other ground facility).

This is specifically annoying when folks in data recovery mix up these two. They are, like, supposed to know better.
