For our weekly chuckle - RAMAC Disk drive 1956


CAN YOU GUESS WHAT'S IN THE BOX BEING LOADED ON THE AIRCRAFT?

It's a hard disk drive (HDD) in 1956...with 5 MB storage.In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first computer with a hard disk drive.

The HDD weighed over a ton and stored 5 MB of data. Appreciate your 8 GB memory stick!
