In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first computer with a hard disk drive (HDD). Do you know that this HDD is weighed over a ton and stored only 5MB of data. Let us start appreciating our 4 GB finger-size flash drives we have in hand. Muahahahaha..
Errrrr.... of course in 1956 I couldn't even spell computer, let alone know what a hard disk was.
