What's In This Picture?
Hint: the picture was taken in 1956 ...when Pan American Airways was still around.
Answer: It's a hard disk drive from 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.
The HDD weighed over a ton and stored an astonsihing 5 MB of data.
Don't you appreciate your 8 GB USB memory stick a bit more now?
