  storage
  
      (Or "memory") A device into which data can be
     entered, in which it can be held, and from which it can be
     retrieved at a later time.  The distinguishing characteristics
     of a device are its capacity (the number of bytes it can
     hold), its access speed, whether it is volatile (loses
     data when the power is turned off), removeable and/or
     writeable.  Common examples are DRAM, hard disk, CD-ROM,
     Flash memory.
