Guess What This Is?

Hint: the picture was taken in 1956.

Answer…

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 a ‘whopping’ 5 MB of data.

So do you appreciate your iPhone 5 with 32 GB of memory a little more now?
