Hint: This picture was taken in 1956.

an atom bomb?
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.
Do you appreciate your 8 GB memory stick a little more now? =)
