I don’t know what to say!!!

One of my friends shared this..Now i have no clue how come they got the picture.So image courtesy is ….

Guess what the picture is?

Hint : It was taken back in 1956.

It’s a hard disk drive  back in 1956… With 5 MB of storage.  

In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first ‘SUPER’ computer with a hard disk drive (HDD). The HDD weighed over a ton and stored just ‘whopping’ 5  MB of data.

Any comments????????????????

  1. now that hard disk is dual purpose. . it can store digital data, it can be used as a store-room & kids can play hide-n-seek in there

    THAT is called value for money!

  2. Thanks for liking my post and visiting my blog Excogitate The Life. Even I like this unusual kind of post of yours as I always search for such things. Please do look other posts as well and let me know yr valuable comments.

  3. Well, there is also a famous controversial statement by Bill Gates which goes like this “640K ought to be enough for anybody.” Oh yeah, he was referring to RAM by then… Now I can only ready through and see that 5MB HDD pic and laugh loud and move on.
