Can you guess what this is?
Clue – It is very old.
Clue – we still use them today.
Clue – we could not live without them today . . .
Yes, a HDD external hard disk drive from 1956.
The capacity of this HDD is just 5 MB.
To get some perspective . . .
I just bought a new 2 TB Terrabyte HDD. It cost just $99 and I could fit 4 of them in a shoe box.
That is equal to 2,000,000 MB . . . .
Imagine 2 million of these boxes lined up in a row – and we have that capacity now inside a shoe box!
IBM released this box back in September 1956 and called it the 305 RAMAC, the first computer with a hard disk drive (HDD).
Oh, and it weighs in at over a ton!
Get your own HDD now.
If you don’t have an external HDD, you should get one.
Use it to back up your computer.
You will never need this . . . until you need it, and then it will be too late.
All your business data gone.
All your family pictures and music lost.
What should you do now?
1. Maybe just sit in awe of how things have changed.
2. Make sure that you have your own external HDD and use it to back up your computer.
