When men were men, and hard drives were...enormous

We think very little today about going online or heading to the computer store and plunking down twenty bucks and leaving with a multi-Gigabyte sized flash drive, or spending $100 and getting a 1Terabyte hard disk drive. Take a trip with me now down memory lane to, oh let's say the mid-1950's, when this IBM film crows about a hard drive the size of a refrigerator, which offers about 5MB of storage. No, you read that correctly, 5MB - about the size of single MP3 file.
Go to around to 8 minute mark to see the beast in action, if you dare...
