Guess what this is...

Don't know? That's okay...neither did I. This is the volume and size of 5MB memory storage in 1956.

In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first computer with a hard disk drive (HDD). The HDD weighed over a ton and stored 5MB of data.

Makes you appreciate your 4 GB jump drive, doesn't it?
