Guess What This Is?

Guess What This Is....

Hint: picture was  taken in 1956...
Answer  below...

Yes – it is a Pan American Airline - Plane

And NO – it is not a Toilet

It's a hard disk drive  back in 1956... with 5 MB 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  MB of data.  


Do you appreciate your  8 GB memory stick a little more now?
