Amazing difference in Storage Density 1956 vs 2010

|December 2 2010 |Fun

Can you guess the object they are trying to heavy-lift? Hint: This picture was taken in year 1956


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 :) Remember the editorial article we wrote about the Mobile storage industry? The SDXC Cards that can store upto 2 TB of data? SDXC Cards weight just 0.5g! Even if we assume the 64GB SDXC Cards available in the market now, the difference in storage density is mind-boggling!

1956 - 5 Bytes per gram
2010 - 128 GB per gram

This is what we call EVOLUTION! We are truly blessed to live in this era!
