It was 1956 and these guys were trying to dispatch this hard disk somewhere. The hard disk weighed 1 ton and it could store 5 MB of data.
This was one of the early hard disks. Have a look at the IBM 350 Disk Storage Unit. We have come a long way.I somehow feel the oldies(ppl in the industry till the end of millenium) of CompSci were the real innovators...Can someone give the scientists a 4GB pendrive, please ?
