Hint: the picture was taken in 1956.

It's a hard drive back in 1956... With 5 Megabyte 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 Megabyte of data.
Now Do you appreciate your 8 GB memory stick a little more now?
