I use to work in a government center for the military, I had a classified security clearance, they were still using punch cards, reel-to-reel tape, also IBM's 3370 uses seven 14-inch platters to store 571MB, the first drive to use thin-film heads.
I was born in 1994, so times of those drives are for me imposible to imagine. But I am not looking so far in the past - my first PC was a laptop - Toshiba Sattelite Pro 4600 with Pentium 750Mhz, 386Mb of RAM and 40gb hard drive. It was something like a 8 years ago? Those specs weren't any good even in those times, but still on a 40gb hard drive i had everything I needed and also i didn't have any trash and unneeded things, which i do now. Every single file which was not important for me was deleted, but today? My phone has better specs and I have in it 32gb sd card Even my first smartphone - Xperia U - which I had 4 years ago? It had Dual Core 800Mhz CPU and 512mb of RAM . I still have my first MP3 player with 1gb of memory. It was also good, because each song, which I had on it was damn good! But today? I don't have a time to select it and I put all folders and then I click 15 times "next" just to listen 1 song, and after it ends again 15 times "next"
Computer hardware is getting old so fast...
